CHELSEA — The B, D, F and M trains will skip stops along Sixth Avenue in Manhattan on weekday nights for two weeks starting on Monday, the MTA said.

From 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. on Monday, Feb. 6, through the morning of Friday, Feb. 10, and again from Monday, Feb. 13 through the morning of Friday, Feb. 17, trains running along Sixth Avenue will not stop at 14th Street, 23rd Street, 34th Street-Herald Square, 42nd Street-Bryant Park, 47th–50th Streets/Rockefeller Center and 57th Street.

D trains will make local stops on the A and C tracks between between 59th Street-Columbus Circle and West 4th Street during that time, as well as on the F line between West 4th Street and the Second Avenue station.

F trains will travel on the E line between West 4th Street and Roosevelt Avenue in both directions, and there will be no D train service between Manhattan and Brooklyn between 10 p.m. and 5 a.m. on those nights. 

Manhattan-bound B and M train service in Brooklyn and Queens will end at around 9:30 p.m.

For service to and from Lexington Avenue/63rd Street, Roosevelt Island and 21st Street-Queensbridge, passengers can take a special S shuttle train running to those stops. Transfers will be available to the Q train at Lexington Avenue/63rd Street and to the 4,5,6, N and R trains at Lexington Avenue/59th Street.

The shuttle will make stops at Roosevelt Island every 20 minutes, the MTA said.

The service changes are part of the MTA’s FASTRACK program to perform maintenance and repairs in subway tunnels and stations.

A complete list of travel alternatives for the affected nights can be found on the MTA’s website.
