Q Service To Suffer Service Disruptions Until March

There will be no Q train service on weekends from the beginning of January till March in certain stops in Brooklyn and Manhattan.

Shuttle buses will replace the Q train between the Atlantic Avenue and Prospect Park stations, from every weekend after New Year’s day through March. The Q train will not run in either direction between Prospect Park and 57th Street/ 7th Avenue in Manhattan.

The MTA says the disruptions are for track work and replacements that couldn’t have started until the Brighton Line rehabilitation project was complete.

Here are the shuttle bus weekends:

  • January: 7-9, 14-16, 21-23, 28-30
  • February: 11-13, 18-20, 25-27

The shuttle buses will stop at the following locations:

  • Prospect Park – Lincoln Rd at station entrance
  • 7th Avenue – Flatbush Avenue at Park Place
  • Atlantic Avenue-Pacific Street – 4 Av at Pacific Street

Shuttle bus service begins 30 minutes prior to service change.

But there are other options. 2, 4, A, and C trains service will still be available through the Franklin Avenue Shuttle at Prospect Park; you can also walk to the 2 or the F/G trains.
