Updated March 25, 2020
We’re continuing to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic, getting health-care workers, first responders, and other essential personnel where they need to go.
Starting Wednesday, March 25, subway lines will operate our MTA Essential Service Plan. This preserves our a.m. and p.m. peak service for essential workers while helping reduce density for our staff and riders.
If you can stay home, please do.
