The MTA has announced that the Second Avenue Subway is to open this weekend!
This is the Second Avenue Q Service Guide from MTA.info:
Make Second Avenue service, your first choice
The Second Avenue Subway brings the to the Upper East Side of Manhattan with service to Coney Island, Brooklyn and points in between. Get on board for:
- More commuting options
- More transfers between subway and bus
- More East Side destinations to explore!
More subway tracks on the East Side under Second Avenue mean more room for Lexington Avenue Line riders. By choosing Second Avenue service, you’re helping to ease crowding and congestion on one of the busiest subway lines in the nation.
As part of the city’s first major expansion project in more than 50 years, three brand new fully accessible stations are opening at 72 St, 86 St and 96 St. Not only have we added these new stations, we’ve also enhanced the existing one at Lexington Av/63 St. Now serving both the and subway routes, this station features an all new, fully accessible entrance at Third Avenue and East 63 St. Transfers are easy and convenient, just across the platform, benefitting riders to and from Queens.
The Second Avenue Subway also features the largest permanent public art installation in New York State history commissioned through MTA Arts & Design. Four world-class installations help make the line an underground museum, and will provide a source of appreciation, inspiration and beauty to both customers and visitors for decades to come.
We’re sure you’ll agree that when it comes to the Upper East Side, Second Avenue service should be the first choice for your commute!
