New York (works): the end

For the last 8 monthes, I have tried to provide a special version of our database for New York (USA) taking into account the works on the MTA network and this took me 3 to 5 hours every Friday.

Unfortunately, after checking the MTA advisories for the coming week, it has just become apparent that it is impossible for me to keep up with all the planned disruptions. I don't even imagine how New-Yorkers can ever plan a trip in the subway with those changes (just take a look at the advisories for line A, as an example).

Consequently, the "works" version of the New York database is now discontinued: the corresponding database won't be delivered anymore and the i-MetrO service will now use the regular network information only.

I just want to send my apologies to the few (very few, actually) users who were counting on this file for their trips.


  1. Thanks for all your hard work. Those changes were insane. Totally understandable that you would stop.

  2. One of the few...

    Okay, I concede it. MTA daily changes are totally out of hand - thanks for trying. Meantime, I'll sync to the regular NYC lines, and keep an eye on the MTA website for advisories.

  3. As a small consolation, you can subscribe here to receive email advisories directly from MTA NYC Transit on Fridays about weekend service changes on the subway lines of your choice....
