I got my first MTA service advisory via email today:
Weekend Service Changes for the 4 5 6
No trains between New Lots Av and Brooklyn Bridge
12:01 AM Sat to 5 AM Mon until May 16
Weekend Service Changes for the 1 2 3
S (Times Sq shuttle)
Shuttle buses replace trains between Chambers St and South Ferry
12:01 AM Sat to 5 AM Mon, May 21 – 23
Uptown trains skip 225 and 238 Sts
6 AM to 6 PM Sat, May 14
This is a nice service, so I feel kind of bad complaining about it within a few minutes of the first email. All right, I don’t feel that bad about it. Anyway, the information listed above came as two separate emails. So those people who asked for updates on all lines must have been inundated with email this afternoon. Putting this information in one email would require a little more programming work, but it would sure be worth it.
Another nice thing to have would be an RSS feed of this information.
