Travel Alert: Overnight Train Shutdown Feb. 27-March 2

It doesn’t happen for another week, but this is going to be a big inconvenience for a lot of people, so here’s an early head’s up about a total overnight shutdown of subway service to/from the Lower East Side.  As part of the MTA’s new “Fastrack” program, the B, D, F and M trains will be offline 10 p.m.-5 a.m. from February 27 to March 2.  The idea behind Fastrack is to to “inspect, maintain, and upgrade stations, tracks and signals in less time, at less cost.”   During the outage there will be shuttle bus service between Bleecker Street to/from the Grand Street B/D station.
