The MTA w train or W Broadway Local/Express was a rapid transit service of the New York City Subway B Division that ran from 2001 to 2010 as its shown in MTA w train map. MTA w train was colored yellow on station signs and the subway map, as it ran on the BMT Broadway Line in Manhattan. In addition to the Broadway Line, the MTA w train served the BMT Astoria Line in Queens and used the 60th Street Tunnel to travel under the East River between Manhattan and Queens during its nine-year history. MTA w train also ran in Brooklyn until 2004, serving the BMT Fourth Avenue Line and BMT West End Line.
The MTA w train was introduced on July 22, 2001 when the Manhattan Bridge north tracks were closed for reconstruction as its mentioned in MTA w train map. The B had run full-time from Coney Island – Stillwell Avenue to Manhattan via the BMT West End Line and Manhattan Bridge north tracks onto the IND Sixth Avenue Line, but had to be split as a result of the reconstruction project.
On March 24, 2010 the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) announced the elimination of the MTA w train due to financial shortfalls with the N and Q replacing it. The MTA w train service ceased operation on June 25, 2010 with the last train bound for Astoria – Ditmars Boulevard leaving Whitehall Street as youcan see in MTA w train map– South Ferry at 10:50 p.m.
