Is RIOC Coordinating With MTA For Full Roosevelt Island Weekend F Train Service During 6 Month Tram Station Repairs & Single Tram Cabin Operation? Good News For This Weekend, Roosevelt Island F Train Service To And From Manhattan

A Roosevelt Island resident asked:

Does anyone know if they are coordinating with MTA to ensure there is F train service during this time?
During the July 24 Roosevelt Island Operating Corp (RIOC) Operations Advisory Committee meeting, I asked if the weekend F Train service disruptions will occur during the duration of Tram Station repairs and single service Tram Cabin service.

RIOC Director Of Operations Shelton Haynes replied the MTA advised RIOC that the regular, routine weekend Roosevelt Island F Train service interruptions will not occur during the Tram Station Repairs and Single Cabin Service period. But in the event of an emergency, there still may be Roosevelt Island weekend  F train service interruptions.

Good news for this weekend.

 According to the MTA, there will be Roosevelt Island F Train service

to and from Manhattan this weekend.
