NYC Transit New Year’s 2015 Service Plan

Here is the New Year’s Eve & Day service plan info for MTA NYC Transit:

New Year’s Eve, Thursday, December 31:

The MTA is the best way for revelers to get to Times Square or other festivities on New Year’s Eve, and to travel home afterwards. The MTA recommends that customers purchase their MetroCards or train tickets in advance.

Customers heading to Times Square for the celebration should avoid using the 42 St-Times Square subway complex, since they may not be allowed to exit onto the street. In addition, the northbound platform at 50 St 1 and both north and southbound platforms at 49 St NQR will be closed from 7 p.m. until shortly after midnight. Riders are urged to exit from stations at 50 St, 57 St or 59 St-Columbus Circle instead and walk to Times Square. Additional service will be provided on the 1234567ACDEFLNQRS lines.

Buses are not recommended for traveling to Times Square because of the numerous street closures in the area. The following bus routes may be subject to reroutes: M5, M7, M20, M42, M50, and M104. Regular overnight bus service will resume as streets reopen after midnight. Following the celebration, trains on lines in and around Times Square will run every 8 to 12 minutes until approximately 3 a.m. The 42nd Street shuttle S will operate all night.

New York City buses will operate on weekday schedules with minor timing changes, except for Staten Island, where limited stop routes S81, S84, S86, S90, S91, S92, S94, S96 and S98 will not operate. Weekday local service will operate along those routes. Limited stop routes S89 and S93 will operate on weekday schedules with minor timing changes. All Staten Island, Brooklyn and Queens “X” express routes will operate on weekday schedules with minor timing changes.

The New York City Subway will operate on a regular weekday schedule.

New Year’s Day, Friday, January 1:

The New York City Subway will operate on a Sunday schedule throughout the day, and New York City buses will operate on a Holiday schedule with longer waits on some bus routes. Bus customers can use MTA Bus Time for real-time bus arrival estimates.
