Because of construction on the 1 line, 2 trains in both directions will make local stops between 34th St.-Penn Station and Chambers Street stations on Saturday and Sunday.

3 Train
3 Trains will make local stops in both directions between 34th St.-Penn Station and Chambers Street on Saturday and Sunday because of construction on the 1 line.
