Grand Street Shuttle

Grand Street Shuttle

The Grand Street Shuttle (black NYCS service|S) was a New York City Subway service that operated during the long Manhattan Bridge rehabilitation, while the north tracks (connecting to the IND Sixth Avenue Line via the Chrystie Street Connection) were closed. It usually ran between Broadway–Lafayette Street and Grand Street, picking up the slack from rerouted NYCS service|B and NYCS service|D service.

Service disruptions that took the Manhattan Bridge north tracks out of service, with the shuttle running between Broadway–Lafayette Street and Grand Street, included the following:

*March 12, 1984 and August 10November 3, 1985 (NYCS service|B and NYCS service|D cut back to West Fourth Street–Washington Square)

*April 30 – November, 1995 (NYCS service|B running only between Atlantic Avenue–Pacific Street and Coney Island–Stillwell Avenue while the NYCS service|D was running between Norwood–205th Street and 34th Street–Herald Square).

During the first phase of the Manhattan Bridge rehabilitation, from 1986 to 1988, the shuttle was extended to 57th Street and was called the Sixth Avenue Shuttle while the NYCS service|B and NYCS service|D terminated at 34th Street.

The final Grand Street Shuttle service began on July 22, 2001, again between Broadway–Lafayette Street and Grand Street, while the NYCS service|B and NYCS service|D services were truncated to 34th Street. The Sixth Avenue Shuttle (which also ended at Broadway–Lafayette Street) was ended on December 16, 2001, and the Grand Street Shuttle was extended north to West Fourth Street–Washington Square. The rehabilitation was finished on February 22, 2004, and the shuttle was discontinued. Also during this time, a shuttle bus ran between Canal Street and Grand Street.
