Roosevelt Island F Train Service To And From Manhattan This Weekend Says MTA - Hope MTA's Right

Will there be Roosevelt Island F Train service to and from Manhattan this weekend?

Well, that's a little bit confusing right now.

According to the current MTA Weekender site, there will be Roosevelt Island F train service to and from Manhattan this weekend:
No scheduled work affecting service on this line
But there were signs posted in the Roosevelt Island Subway station this week, including today, noting that there would not be F Train service from Roosevelt Island to Manhattan this weekend

and the Roosevelt Island Operating Corp (RIOC) issued this advisory on February 13:
The MTA has advised that there will be no Manhattan bound F trains this weekend, Friday, February 14th from 11:15 P.M. to 5:00 A.M. Tuesday, February 18th.

Travelers are advised to check online at or call 511 for the most current information on this or any other MTA service advisory. To sign up for real time alerts on planned service changes, visit

This confusion is so frustrating for folks who have to plan an already treacherous commute into Manhattan over the weekend. I suggest as many of us as possible send a complaint to the MTA. Here's the link:
