GREENPOINT — As Polish residents flock to their annual pride parade this weekend, the MTA promises there will be enough rides to cart revelers to the Manhattan festivities — even though the "lifeline" subway from Greenpoint won't be working.

Construction continues on the G train this weekend, but there will be even more shuttle buses than usual to replace the subway Sunday for the Pulaski Day Parade, officials announced. 

The MTA will add six extra buses to help Greenpoint residents take the rides from Greenpoint Avenue to Queens Plaza, where they can transfer to the 7 train to Midtown Manhattan near the parade, state Assemblyman Joseph Lentol said.

“I made several calls to the MTA asking them to make the necessary increases in service to ensure that Greenpoint residents attending the parade are not severely inconvenienced,” Lentol said in an announcement. “I am happy to say the people of Greenpoint should have a significantly easier commute to Manhattan for the Pulaski Day Parade.”

The MTA did not immediately return calls requesting comment.
