April 6, 2016 Staff Report

New Yorkers can offer their feedback on W Train restoration to the MTA at a public hearing tomorrow evening.

The MTA has scheduled the hearing for 5 p.m. on Thursday at 2 Broadway in Manhattan (20th Floor).

The MTA announced in February that it intends to restore W service in the fall. It would run local service from Astoria into Manhattan and terminate at Whitehall street, effectively replacing Q service in Queens.

This change will allow the Q to be diverted to the Upper East Side, serving the Second Avenue Subway between 63rd and 96th Streets when it opens – which the agency said would be “later this year.”

In addition, N trains will operate express in Manhattan from 34 St-Herald Square to Canal Street, a change from its current local service in Manhattan. R service would remain unchanged.

To register as a speaker at tomorrow’s meeting, call (646) 252-6777 or sign up online here. Email comments will also be accepted online until April 14.
