Memorial Day 2017 Holiday Transit Schedules

Note: Information for the NYC MTA, PATH, Chicago CTA, and Pace have been added.

Memorial Day will be on Monday, May 29, 2017. Memorial Day gives us here in the United States a chance to reflect on the hardworking service of our military members, especially those who have lost their lives while fighting to protect our country’s freedoms.

Like most Federal Holidays, most transit agencies will be running limited services, with some agencies not running services at all. If you plan on using transit on Memorial Day, please plan your day accordingly…and in ahead, as customer service lines may be closed.
