7 Line icon Fall 2013 Update &
Service Changes

Communication Based Train Control (CBTC) installation work in October and November will impact service between Manhattan and Queens during five weekends. Planned service changes, like those scheduled for this fall and for the next several years, allow this vital project to move ahead.

When complete, the new signal system will interface with subway cars and countdown clocks. This integration will improve train service reliability and enhance customer communication for Flushing Line customers. We understand that these service changes are an inconvenience and temporarily alter the way you travel, but the work is necessary for the modernization and improvement of the 7line icon line.

Did you know? The $2.4 billion 1.5-mile extension to 34 St and 11 Avenue in Manhattan, scheduled to open in June 2014, is 90% complete, and will further contribute to the reliability of 7line icon line service by providing additional storage space for trains. It will also make it easier to reach West Side destinations such as the Jacob Javits Convention Center.
