We’ve just gotten word that the M train will be running on Friday for commuters into and out of Long Island City. Trains will operate between Myrtle Avenue-Broadway and Metropolitan Avenue and make local stops between Jamaica Center and 34th St/Herald Sq (via 63 St).
This is a sigh of relief for those who live in Hunters Point and needed to trek all the way to the N line. They’ll now be able to take the M from Ely Ave. located on 21st Street and 44th Dr.
No word on the 7 or E line (though the 7 trains will operate in Queens between Main St—74 St and Broadway, making local stops).
Update: Readers are finding that the M is not stopping at Court Square. You still need to head to Queensbridge.
