Service Changes Expected On F And M Subway Lines Monday

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — If you ride the F or M trains to get to work, be prepared for a more difficult morning commute.

The MTA is reporting a switch problem near the Queens Plaza station will impact service on the two train lines for the Monday morning rush.

First, Queens bound F trains will travel via the 53rd Street tunnel from 47th-50th Street-Rockefeller Center to Roosevelt Avenue in Queens.

Also, Forest Hills bound M trains will travel via the 63rd Street tunnel from 47th-50th Street-Rockefeller Center to 36th Street in Queens.

Manhattan bound service, however, will not be affected.

The MTA advises transferring between Queens bound F and M trains at 47th-50th Street-Rockefeller Center.
