More 1 train riders will have to deal with the fun of shuttle buses, because the MTA is closing the West 168th, 157th, and 145th Street stations from midnight on Sunday till 5 a.m. Monday—and the Post said the closing could last "possibly longer." Why? Because the MTA wants to inspect the ceiling at 168th Street which is very similar to West 181st, where a chunk of the ceiling collapsed earlier this week, sending subway riders north of West 168th into shuttle bus hell. So, if the inspection is at 168th Street, why are 157th and 145th stations closing? The MTA explains, "Trains can reverse direction only at locations where there are track switches, this inspection will necessitate the lengthening of the bus shuttle south to 137th Street," where free shuttle bus service is available to Dyckman Street—more details here.
