Service changes on the G line in summer 2024

There will be major service changes on the G line in summer 2024 while we modernize signals. Here's what you need to know.
Updated July 19, 2024 11:30 a.m.

What we’re doing

From June 28 to September 3, service on the  line will be partially suspended in three phases:

  • From June 28 to July 5,  trains didn’t run between Court Sq and Nassau Av.
  • From July 5 to August 12,  trains won’t run between Court Sq and Bedford-Nostrand Avs.
  • From August 12 to September 3,  trains won’t run between Bedford-Nostrand Avs and Church Av.

Other service changes may also affect your trip. Check planned service changes or service status, or use the MTA app for more information. You can also sign up for email and text alerts.

Why we’re doing it

The Crosstown Line, used by the  train, still has its original signal system from when it opened over 90 years ago. This system is now past the end of its useful life. So, we’re bringing the latest in communications-based train control (CBTC) technology to the Crosstown Line. A more modern, reliable signal system means more reliable service for the 160,000 riders who take the  each day.

We’re partially suspending service 24/7 in three phases because this will allow us to complete the work much more quickly than working only overnight or on weekends. This will help us reach our goal of fully upgrading the signal system on the Crosstown Line by 2027.
