B/Q Line Subway Service Advisories: 1/14 – 1/18

“Q Train” (pastel on paper, 22 x 30) by Nigel van Wieck

It’s that time of week again when we remind you that, no, you don’t live in transit utopia. We’ve got another week of service changes on the B and Q line. Here’s this week’s mess, which is pretty much the same as the last few weeks’ messes:


From 9:45 a.m. to 3 p.m., Wednesday to Friday, Manhattan-bound B trains run local from Sheepshead Bay to Prospect Park. But that’s okay, because Coney Island-bound Q trains run express from Prospect Park to Sheepshead Bay, and that sort of makes up for it, right?


From 10 p.m. to 12 midnight, Monday to Thursday, B service ends early between Brighton Beach and 145 St.

These service changes affect one or more ADA accessible stations. Please call 511 for help with planning your trip. If you are deaf or hard of hearing, use your preferred relay service provider or the free 711 relay. For more information, visit

  1. the Q running express back makes it up for me coming from Brighton Beach. though especially on a rainy day like today it sucks for anyone on a local stop
