I thought there was going to be 2 Trams all day on the weekends, regardless of the F-train schedule. There was and I think there is still only 1 tram running. This is not according to the schedule....Yesterday, I asked the Roosevelt Island Operating Corp (RIOC) Transportation Manager Cy Opperman:
Some residents have expressed confusion over the weekend Tram Schedules particularly when the F Train is not running in one direction or the other.Tram Operator Poma Leitner's Armando Cordova replied:
Can you clarify what the Tram schedule is on weekends - both with normal F Train service and when the F is only running in one direction and if both cabins run on weekends (and during what hours)....
The Roosevelt Island Tram Weekend Schedule is as follows;Mr. Cordova added that during the weekend rush hour service, the Tram runs every 7 1/2 minutes.
Fridays, Saturdays and Sunday the tram opens @ 06:00 AM.
Fridays and Saturdays the tram close @ 3:30AM
Sundays @ 2:00AM.
DURING “F“ TRAIN WEEKEND SERVICE INTERRUPTION
In an effort to service our residents during the “F” train weekend service disruptions, especially the times we do not receive any notices from MTA, The Tram is on a permanent weekend rush hour schedule servicing with two cabins Saturdays and Sundays; from 7:00 AM. until 10:00pm.
DURING NO “F” TRAIN SERVICE.
The tram extend it’s operation until 5:00AM.
