^1 There are three routes that are considered part of the City Terminal Zone:
- ML = Main Line
- HP = Hunterspoint Avenue - Trains that serve Hunterspoint Avenue and Long Island City in Queens. This route is served only during weekday rush hours in the peak direction (to Long Island City in the morning, from Long Island City in the afternoon).
- NYP = Trains to Penn Station in Manhattan via the East River Tunnels
- AT = Atlantic Branch – Trains that terminate at Atlantic Terminal in Brooklyn.
In the near future, the City Terminal Zone will include a branch to Grand Central Terminal as a part of the East Side Access project. A new station in Sunnyside, Queens will be built once the remainder of the project is complete.
