1 Train Closure and Transit Alternatives

Notice: 1 Train Service Suspension & Transit Alternatives

 

Beginning January 5, 2019, the MTA will be suspending service to the 168th street stop via the 1 train while they work to replace the elevator system to and from the 1 train platform. The interruption is expected to last through early 2020. This will affect transit for patients and practitioners traveling to and from the ColumbiaDoctors Nurse Practitioner Group locations in Washington Heights.

 

We have outlined some alternatives for public transit below:
