From August 2023 to Early 2024 there will be no F-Train service on Roosevelt Island. In its place, the MTA will be running F-Shuttle Trains between Manhattan and Queens stopping at Roosevelt Island approximately every 20 minutes.


  • FOR THE DURATION OF THE MTA's 63rd STREET TRACKWORK,F SHUTTLE trains will operate between Manhattan and Queens:
    • Serving Lexington Av/63 St, Roosevelt Island, and 21 St-Queensbridge stations.
    • Service will be on a limited frequency due to this being a single-track operation. Customers should expect the shuttle train to operate approximately every 20 minutes.
    • The shuttle train will operate 7 days a week between 5AM-11:59PM (except on limited occasions when both tracks need to be taken out of service temporarily - MTA will provide advance information when they are scheduled).
    • A Q95 free shuttle bus will provide eastern connections from 21 St-Queensbridge to/from Queens Plaza, where customers can connect to EFR trains. Free transfers will also be available to the N and 7 at the nearby Queensboro Plaza station.
