If you happen to exclusively take the 3, 4, 7, or G trains regularly, then click away, this post is not for you. But if you are in the unfortunate position where you have to rely on literally any other line...read on to find out all the subway service changes in store for you this weekend.

And to reward you for getting through all this, enjoy intermittent videos of pizza and pizza-related things. Because it's Friday, and I want to eat pizza for dinner later.

S Train: Through 2020, shuttles will run less frequently, and some tracks will be periodically taken out of service due to rehabilitation work.
