Here We Go Again, Roosevelt Island Tram Service Reduced To Single Cabin Monday February 26 - Saturday March 3 For Service And Inspection Says RIOC

According to the Roosevelt Island Operating Corp (RIOC):

Regularly-scheduled service and inspection work on the Roosevelt Island Tram will reduce commuter service to ONLY one cabin from Monday, Feb. 26 to Saturday, March 3.

To assist with overcrowding during this period, the Roosevelt Island Operating Corporation will operate a Red Bus shuttle during the afternoon peak commuter period from 3 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

The shuttle will depart hourly from the Roosevelt Island Tram Station, starting at 3 p.m. and arrive at the southwest side of Second Avenue between 58th and 59th streets. It will return every half-hour on the hour with the last trip being at 8:30 p.m.

There will be no shuttle bus service on Saturday, March 3.
.. from last July 24 - December 17 the Roosevelt Island Tram operated a single cabin during the Tram Station Repair Project resulting in very long lines and frustrated residents...
... Tram Platform repairs are still scheduled for Spring and will require a single cabin operating for 3 weeks. 
Plan accordingly.
