However, we must remember that the MTA does love to change service patterns on weekends and Opening Day will not deter them from affecting service in and out of Stillwell Terminal.
Here are your travel advisories for those taking the Subway to the Cyclones Home Opener on Saturday and the Father’s Day game in Staten Island on Sunday.
If you are coming from a stop North of Prospect Park (such as Times Sq., Herald Sq., Union Sq., Canal St, Dekalb Ave & Barclays Center) consider transferring to the Q as your trip to Coney Island will be at least 15 minutes quicker.
If you are getting on a Q at a bypassed stop (Parkside Ave, Beverely Rd, Courtelyou Rd, Aves H, J, or M) you have to take a northbound train to either Prospect Park, Church Ave, or Newkirk Plaza to get a Coney Island Bound Q.
You can also consider switching to the 4, 5 & R trains.
There will be heavy traffic in Coney Island on Saturday due to the Mermaid Parade. While it finishes before 1st pitch, it does cause delays.
Those driving to Staten Island on Sunday, please note there is limited parking available near the ballpark. Please consider Mass Transit. If you plan on driving to the ballpark & have space for other fans, or if you need please post it in the Facebook Group REAL BROOKLYN CYCLONES FAN. The accepted going rate is $5 to help cover tolls.
Park and Rides are available at a number of Staten Island Railway stations. Please check the MTA website for a list of those stations.
