M service ends early each night between Forest Hills-71Av and Myrtle Av. R service ends early each night between Forest Hills-71 Av and Whitehall St.

Customers can:

  •  Take the 7 between Manhattan and 74 St/Roosevelt Av or Queensboro Plaza;
  •  Take the N between Manhattan and Queensboro Plaza;
  •  In Manhattan along 8 Av, take the A Local or C instead of the E.
  •  Along 53 St, use the D or nearby 6 and N service instead.

  •  Take the R between Queens Plaza and 71 Av. When R service ends, E trains run local between Queens Plaza and 71 Av until 10 PM.

  •  Free shuttle buses run LOCAL between Queensboro Plaza and 74 St/Roosevelt Av, making station stops at Queens Plaza, 36 St, Steinway St, 46 St, Northern Blvd, and 65 St.
  • In Queens, transfer between shuttle buses and trains at 74 St/Roosevelt Av 7E or Queensboro Plaza 7N.

These FASTRACK efforts have been designed around the careful determination that there is adequate alternate means of transportation, including enhanced services along some bus lines during work periods. Alternative transportation options will be detailed in announcements and posters on trains, in stations and on selected buses; brochures will be available in both English and Spanish.

    Brooklyn's final pitch to hold the 2016 Democratic national convention was centered on New York City's robust mass transit system -- and a pledge to learn "from the mistakes" from the last time the city hosted a presidential convention. The Republicans gathered in New York in 2004 to re-nominate President George W. Bush, choosing to meet in deep-blue Manhattan less than three years after the Sept. 11 terror attacks.
