[Editor's Note, 9:12pm: The original story has been changed to (1) correct the timeframe which trains will be replaced with buses (just this weekend for now, not during rush hour) and (2) to clarify that some stations are closed only in one direction at all times through the spring.]
The commute from Coney Island to Manhattan and beyond can be very painfully nerve challenging by way of the local F train. The MTA will begin a construction project, history proves these to be over budget and behind schedule that will force riders to take a local train to a bus and then back to a local train even during rush hour commute this weekend! Some [Manhattan-bound] stations along the route will be closed [until May] and riders are not happy with the MTA…surprised?
[Further update from WNYC: The below changes will start next weekend - Friday, January 14 - instead of the weekend coming up, due to a potential snow event forecast this weekend and the MTA not wanting to get caught with their snowpants down again. Via FIPS.]
