We're giving stations Re-NEW-vations

When subway stations have to be closed for weekend maintenance or track work, our Re-NEW-vation teams move in.

The Station Re-NEW-vation Program uses the 55-hour window provided by planned weekend service outages to clean, scrub, scrape, paint, brighten, repair, retile, refurbish, renovate, and renew stations from top to bottom. On Monday morning, when service is restored, customers return to an overhauled station. This program is one of the major initiatives in New York City Transit’s Faster, Cleaner, Safer plan to improve the subway customer experience.

Re-NEW-vations aren't just about cleaning. They're about showing stations some love by:

  • Changing lightbulbs
  • Repairing HVAC systems
  • Unclogging drains
  • Securing platforms and stairs
  • Replacing outdated and damaged signs

At some stations, Re-NEW-vations include additional work, such as:

  • Rebuilding two entire staircases at Junction Blvd 
  • Replacing over 12,000 sq. ft. of subway tile at 157 St 
  • Significant roof repairs to shelter customers during heavy rains at Canarsie-Rockaway Pkwy 

We've Re-NEW-vated over 50 stations across the city so far, and we're planning to Re-NEW-vate 50 more each year. So far we've completed the following work:

  • 918 metal signs replaced
  • 41 new decals installed
  • 45 outdated, damaged or unnecessary signs and maps removed
  • 91,960 sq. ft. of wall tile replaced
  • 1.6 million sq. ft. of repainted surfaces
  • 17,030 LED light fixtures replaced
  • 4,142 sq. ft. of floor tiles replaced

It's all designed to give riders a cleaner, brighter, more pleasant experience in the subway system.
