Fast Track

February 27, 2017

    FASTRACK is a subway maintenance, cleaning, and repair program that shuts down segments of a subway line for several hours over consecutive weeknights, allowing our employees to perform a number of critical maintenance jobs. The line shutdown approach has proven successful in that, under normal conditions in our 24/7 system, the scope and breadth of this important work would be impossible to accomplish with customers and trains moving through work areas. Thus far, since FASTRACK began in 2012, the results have had a positive impact on service with a reduction in train delays and a decrease in the number of track fires, while realizing cost efficiencies and a lower accident rate for employees.

    Every week, Moovit updates schedules with all MTA changes so you always have the most accurate trip directions and don’t waste time walking to a closed station or waiting for a train that isn’t coming.  Plan your trip using Moovit and we’ll guide you there smoothly.
