MTA Announces Services for Holiday Weekend

The Metropolitan Transportation Authority services will operate on special schedules today through Sunday for the Thanksgiving weekend.

Details for subways, buses, Metro-North, bridges and tunnels from the MTA follow:

New York City Subways and  Buses

MTA buses and subways will operate on a Sunday schedule on Thanksgiving Day. The closest subway stations to the start of the annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade are the 1 at 79th Street and the C at 81st Street. There will be additional service on the 42nd Street S shuttle as well as increased early morning service on the 1 line. A number of bus routes will be impacted by the parade. On Black Friday, Nov. 23, traditionally one of the busiest shopping days of the year, service will operate on a weekday schedule with some exceptions.

Metro-North Railroad

Metro-North will start operating extra trains departing Grand Central today at 1 p.m. On Thanksgiving Day, Metro-North will operate a holiday schedule with extra AM inbound service for those going to see the Macy’s Parade, and extra late morning and early afternoon outbound service. On Black Friday, Metro-North will operate a Saturday schedule with lots of extra service during the AM and PM peak periods.

Off-peak fares will be in effect for the entire four-day holiday weekend, and customers traveling in groups should consider sharing a 10-trip ticket for savings. Parking will be free at many stations.

Metro-North is also operating extra weekend trains – Shoppers’ Specials – on the New Haven Line, Harlem Line and Hudson Line from Nov. 17 through Dec. 30.

MTA Bridges and Tunnels

To ease travel for its customers this Thanksgiving, routine maintenance and temporary construction work at all MTA Bridges and Tunnels crossings will be suspended beginning at noon today, until early Monday morning, Nov. 26.
