MTA NYCT Service Advisory: Queens A Train Service Replaced by Shuttle Buses Between Broad Channel and Rockaway Boulevard

Published on : Thursday, May 28, 2015

MTA RailMTA New York City Transit has suspended A Subway Line Icon train service between Broad Channel and Rockaway Boulevard because of problems with third rail power near Howard Beach. Shuttle buses will replace the A Subway Line Icon train on this section until further notice.


For northbound service from the Rockaway Peninsula to Brooklyn and Manhattan, customers from Far Rockaway can take an A Subway Line Icon train shuttle to Broad Channel, and customers from Rockaway Park-Beach 116 St can take the S Subway Line Icon shuttle to Broad Channel. Buses from Broad Channel will service the Howard Beach-JFK Airport and Aqueduct-North Conduit Av stations on their way to the Rockaway Blvd station, where customers can take the A Subway Line Icon train into Brooklyn and Manhattan.
Because of ongoing station renewal work that has closed the Queens-bound platform at Rockaway Blvd, customers heading southbound to the Rockaways should take the A Subway Line Icon train to 88 St to transfer to shuttle buses. The buses will serve Aqueduct-North Conduit Av, Howard Beach-JFK Airport and Broad Channel, where A Subway Line Icon shuttle and S Subway Line Icon shuttle service will be available to Rockaway Peninsula stations.


Customers on the Rockaway Peninsula should plan on extra time for their travels and should consider alternate service. MTA Long Island Rail Road will cross-honor MetroCards at the LIRR Far Rockaway station. Customers may also take the Q35, Q52, Q53, Q113 and Q114 buses as alternatives.


Service on the A Subway Line Icon and C Subway Line Icon lines will be reduced to accommodate these changes, and customers should anticipate some delays and crowding on their travels. Customers heading to or from John F. Kennedy International Airport should connect to the JFK AirTrain at the E Subway Line Icon train station at Sutphin Blvd-Archer Av, or at the LIRR’s Jamaica Station.
