The 4 Lexington Avenue Express is a rapid transit service of the New York City Subway. It is colored green on station signs, route signs, and the official subway map, since it uses the IRT Lexington Avenue Line in Manhattan.

The 4 service operates at all times. Normal service operates between Woodlawn in the Bronx and Utica Avenue in Crown Heights, Brooklyn via Lexington Avenue.

4 trains operate express in Manhattan and Brooklyn and local in the Bronx. During late nights, 4 trains make all local stops in the Bronx, Manhattan, and Brooklyn, and the southern terminus for the 4 is extended further south to New Lots Avenue. During weekday rush hours, in the peak direction (to Manhattan during a.m. hours, from Manhattan during p.m. hours), the 4 skips 138th Street – Grand Concourse.

During the extension of the IRT Lexington Avenue Line north of 42nd Street – Grand Central Terminal, shuttle trains served the IRT Jerome Avenue Line (which at the time was only between East 149th Street – Grand Concourse and Kingsbridge Road).

On July 17, 1918, the entire Jerome and Lexington Avenue Lines were completed and the connection to the Broadway – Seventh Avenue Line at 42nd Street was removed. Trains began running between Woodlawn and Bowling Green.

Beginning November 24, 1925, rush hour trains ran to Crown Heights – Utica Avenue. Over the next three years, trains were gradually extended there during other times.

Beginning December 20, 1946, trains were extended from Utica to New Lots Avenue during late nights.

From 1950 to 1957, there was limited rush hour service to Flatbush Avenue on the Nostrand Avenue Line.

Beginning April 8, 1960, late night trains were rerouted to Flatbush Avenue.

Beginning July 10, 1983, the current 4 service was formed, except that midday trains ran only to Atlantic Avenue. On January 18, 1988, those trains were extended to Utica Avenue as well.

From June 8, 2009 to June 26, 2009, New York City Transit conducted a pilot program for express Jerome Avenue Line service. Four morning weekday rush hour trains from Woodlawn stopped at Mosholu Parkway, Burnside Avenue and 149th Street – Grand Concourse before they resumed regular service in Manhattan and Brooklyn.[1]

Starting October 26, the MTA will once again implement a 4 express pilot program, based on the success of the earlier pilot program, which will run into December 11. The second pilot program notably stops at one more station than the first; Bedford Park Boulevard – Lehman College
