Navigating the MTA is like navigating the Cretan Labyrinth. But your pals at Sheepshead Bites are here to help you be like Theseus getting through Daedalus’ mess. So here are this week’s service changes, and when you get to work, be sure to point at your boss, yell “Minotaur!” and club him over the head.


From 9:45 a.m. to 3 p.m., Wednesday to Friday, Manhattan-bound B trains run local from Sheepshead Bay to Prospect Park. Meanwhile, Coney Island-bound Q trains are hopped up on some sort of amphetamine, and running express from Prospect Park to Sheepshead Bay, making the Manhattan-bound B look all kinds of silly.


From 12:01 a.m. to 5 a.m., Thursday and Friday, Coney Island-bound Q trains run local from 34 St-Herald Sq to Canal 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
