With 3 major upcoming Spring Holidays about to occur, the MTA has sent out word on service plan information. Here are the details:
On Easter Sunday, April 5, all MTA services plan to operate on a normal Sunday schedule. For this Friday, April 3, which is Good Friday and the first night of Passover, the New York City Subway and Staten Island Railway will operate on regular schedules. However, there will be some adjustments to MTA services as noted below.
New York City Buses
On Friday, April 3, Staten Island buses will operate on a reduced weekday schedule. There will be no limited-stop bus service in Staten Island on the S81, S84, S86, S90, S91, S92, S94, S96 and S98 bus routes.
On Friday, April 3, Metro-North will operate a regular weekday schedule, although with financial markets closed, ridership is expected to be down 30-to-40%.
Normally on Passover eve, Metro-North adds train cars to regularly scheduled outbound trains in the early afternoon from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m., so there is capacity for those who want to get home for sundown. But since this is also Good Friday, and ridership is typically significantly lower, no added cars are planned.
