NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Service changes on multiple subway lines might make your weekend commute a little more complicated.

The service changes affect the 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, A, C, F, G, J, M, Q and S lines.

Some of the changes include the following:

  • Manhattan-bound 1 trains skip 238th, 231st and 225th streets
  • No. 4 trains between Atlantic Ave-Barclays Center and Utica Avenue/New Lots Avenue
  • No. 7 trains between Queensboro Plaza and Times Square-42nd Street
  • The subway changes have brought frustration for some commuters – particularly those who were experiencing yet another weekend with no 7 line service between Times Square and Queensboro Plaza.

    “It’s horrible,” said Louis.

    But Louis cannot avoid it, because he has to get to work

    “I work in the city and I live in Flushing,” he said. “So I have to go all way down to take the N train. It totally messes up your whole morning.”

    But Marie said the inconvenience of the subway repairs will pay off.

    “We’re investing a few months and then it’ll permanently get back. And then it’ll be really good,” she said.
