Expect Crowded Roosevelt Island Tram Cabins & Stations This Weekend, No Roosevelt Island Subway Service From Manhattan April 23 -25 But RIOC Will Be Providing 24 Hours Tram Service and Both Cabins Running

Expect crowded Roosevelt Island Trams this weekend because there will again be no F train service to Roosevelt Island from Manhattan starting at 12:01 AM Saturday April 23- 5 AM Monday April 25. According to the MTA:
F Jamaica-bound trains are rerouted via the  M from 47-50 Sts to Queens Plaza

Weekend 12:01 AM Sat to 5 AM, Mon April 23 - Apr 25

...  For service to Roosevelt Island and 21 St-Queensbridge, take the  F to Roosevelt Av

and transfer to a Coney-Island bound F.

For service from 57 St, Lexington Av-63 St, Roosevelt Island and 21 St-Queensbridge,

take a Coney Island-bound  F to 47-50 Sts and transfer to a Jamaica-bound F.
As an alternative, since the F Train will be running on the M line, you can take the F to 53rd and Lexington. Then walk to the Tram on 2 Ave and 60th Street thereby avoiding the longer subway trip into Queens and back to Roosevelt Island.

The Roosevelt Island Operating Corp (RIOC) will be adding additional Tram and Red Bus service during this weekend's upcoming F train subway disruption. According to RIOC:
... RIOC will provide 24-hour Tram and Red Bus service during the weekend of April 23rd to minimize the inconvenience to Island residents.

There will be 2 Trams running during the hours of 12 PM and 7 PM on Saturday and Sunday. At all other times that weekend, both Trams will run at 15 minute intervals.
