T (New York City Subway service)
|Second Avenue Local|
|Northern end||125th Street|
|Southern end||Hanover Square|
The T Second Avenue Local is a prospective rapid transit service on the Second Avenue Subway in the B Division of the New York City Subway. It will be colored turquoise on route signs, station signs, and the official subway map.
T was previously used for a service on the BMT West End Line, originally BMT 3. It was discontinued in 1967, but a shuttle, designated TT, continued into 1968, when it was replaced by the B train via Sixth Avenue in Manhattan. With the closing of the Manhattan Bridge's north side in 2001, the B in Brooklyn was replaced by the W via Broadway. In 2004, the Manhattan Bridge reopened for subway service and the W was replaced by the D via Sixth Avenue.
The Second Avenue Subway is under construction, with the first phase, running from 63rd to 96th Streets, planned for completion in 2016. The T designation will not be used until the third phase, planned to run from Houston to 63rd Street. The third phase is not funded or scheduled.
