MTA Says Regular Roosevelt Island F Train Service To And From Manhattan This Weekend, RIOC Says No Roosevelt Island F Train Service To Manhattan This Weekend - Are You Confused?

The MTA reports that there will be regular Roosevelt Island F Train service to and from Manhattan this weekend.

However, according to the Roosevelt Island Operating Corp (RIOC):
The MTA has advised that there will be no Manhattan bound F trains this weekend, August 9th- 12th from 11:15 PM Friday to 5 AM Monday

For service to Manhattan, take the Queens - bound F train to Roosevelt Ave and transfer to a Manhattan bound F train.

The Tram will operate on a rush hour schedule (every 7.5 minutes) Saturday and Sunday from 7 AM until 10 PM during the F train service disruption.
