The second train will run from South Ferry to 96th Street, and continue on the 3-line from 96th to 148th Street, skipping the 145th Street station.

As an alternative, the MTA will provide a free shuttle bus during these times. The route will span between 96th and 168th along Broadway, and 168th and 191st along St. Nicholas Avenue.

At Dyckman Street, passengers can hop on a shuttle to the the A-line from the 1-line, with the option of getting on the C-line there, or at 59th Street-Columbus Circle.
