Late this afternoon the MTA sent out a press release via e-mail to announce details for NYC Transit & MTA Bus’ Thanksgiving Holiday service. Here are the complete details:
MTA New York City Transit and MTA Bus officials today announced service plans on subways and buses for the upcoming Thanksgiving Day holiday.
On Thanksgiving Day, Thursday, November 27th, New York City Transit subways will run on a Sunday schedule, with additional service provided after the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. Buses of New York City Transit and MTA Bus will also run on a Sunday schedule, with slight adjustments to schedules and reroutes for bus routes along the parade route in Manhattan.
On the Friday after Thanksgiving though, subways and buses will operate on a regular weekday schedule. However, while local and express service will be running as usual on Staten Island, limited-stop service will be suspended for the day.
