Good Times Had To End - No Roosevelt Island F Train Service To Manhattan This Weekend

 According to the MTA:
F Coney Island-bound trains run via the E from Roosevelt Av to 5 Av/53 St

Weekend, 10:15 PM Fri to 5 AM Mon, Nov 6 - 9

Trains resume regular service at 47-50 Sts.

No Coney Island-bound F service at 21 St-Queensbridge, Roosevelt Island, Lexington Av/63 St and 57 St.
We had 5 consecutive weekends of Roosevelt Island F Train service to and from Manhattan but, alas, not a 6th.

The Roosevelt Island Operating Corp (RIOC) adds:
The MTA has issued a weekend service advisory for the F train, which may affect travel plans. The Tram will run on a rush hour schedule from 7:00 AM until 10:00 PM to accommodate any increase in traffic. Please plan your travel accordingly and visit or call 511 for more information.
