O em G!
Metropolitan Transportation Authority bigwigs will stop G-train service between Bedford-Stuyvesant and Queens every weekend this month, and one more in November, according to information from Community Board 2.
Straphangers who ride the beloved Brooklyn Local will be forced to hop on buses to reach stops between Bedford-Nostrand Avenues and Court Square from 9:45 pm on Fridays through 5 am on Mondays on weekends including Sept. 7–10, 14–17, 21–24, and Sept. 28–Oct. 1.
And subways will again be replaced with shuttle buses between those same stops on Nov. 2–3.
Transit leaders are suspending service in order to upgrade stations that will temporarily close, and perform track maintenance, according to the authority, which said G trains will still run between Bedford-Nostrand Avenues and Church Avenue on those weekends.
Mercifully, the upcoming G-train closures will not overlap with any of the 14 weekends the authority is suspending L-train service between Myrtle-Wyckoff Avenues and Manhattan for track work ahead of the so-called “L-pocalypse” next April. The mini L closures resume Oct. 5–8, and continue on all weekends that month, as well as some in November, February, March, and April.
