42 St Connection Project: The Projects Transforming the 42 St Corridor

There are many projects ongoing and upcoming that all involve improving the 42 St corridor. View each project for updates on what is scheduled and completed, and alternative commute information for any work that may require a long-term change in your routine.

42 St Shuttle

To modernize it, including making it fully accessible for ADA standards, we will fully rebuild the 42 St Shuttle service including the track operations and terminals at Times Square and Grand Central.

This project will transform all aspects of this critical crosstown link, resulting in a 42 St Shuttle that is accessible and has more capacity during peak times.

Grand Central Station

In addition to the Shuttle terminal improvements, we're making Grand Central Station easier to navigate and more accessible. This means new entrance and exit options, a new elevator and when the Shuttle work is complete, a fully ADA-compliant facility.
