With the turnout expected to be big this Sunday for the People Climate March, MTA NYC Transit will be adding extra service to the & . Also some bus routes will be rerouted. Here are the details:
The People’s Climate March will be held on Sunday, September 21, between 11:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. in midtown Manhattan. The March’s route will begin at Central Park West, between 65 St and 86 Sts, with participants travelling through Midtown and Times Square, ending at 11 Av between 34 St and 38 St, near the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center. Attendance could reach upwards of 60,000 people for this event.
The following NYC Transit and MTA Buses that serve the area will be affected by reroutes and customers should anticipate some delays: M5, M7, M10, M11, M12, M20, 34 SBS, M34A SBS, M42, M66, M72, and M104.
From 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. Bronx-bound D trains will run local between 59 St-Columbus Circle and 125 St. Additionally, due to scheduled weekend work, subway commuters are reminded that 7 train service will be suspended between 74 St-Broadway and 42 St-Times Sq in both directions.
However, additional service will be provided on the E line between Manhattan and Queens as well as on the S 42nd Street Shuttle.
In order to prevent overcrowding on stairways and platforms at subway stations along Central Park West, 34 St-Penn Station and 34 St-Herald Sq, some subway stairways may be designated as “entrance or exit only.”
