C map

The C Eighth Avenue Local is a rapid transit service of the New York City Subway. It is colored blue on route signs, station signs, and the official subway map, since it runs on the IND Eighth Avenue Line through Manhattan.

The C service operates at all times except late nights from 168th Street in Washington Heights, Manhattan, to Euclid Avenue in City Line, Brooklyn via Central Park West and Eighth Avenue in Manhattan and Fulton Street in Brooklyn.

The normal service pattern for the C is local in Manhattan and Brooklyn to complement the A express service.

The C route has no elevated stations, remaining fully underground during its entire run.

1967–1979 service bullet
  • The C and CC services began operation on July 1, 1933 over the then-new IND Concourse Line. The CC local provided continuous service between Bedford Park Boulevard and Hudson Terminal, while the C express ran express, from 205th Street to Bergen Street in Brooklyn.
  • Beginning December 15, 1940, the D train entered service with the opening of the IND Sixth Avenue Line. It would join the C as the peak direction Concourse Express. CC trains would now run between Hudson Terminal and Bedford Park during rush hours and on Saturdays as well. Other times, the D would make local stops in the Bronx.
  • Beginning October 10, 1944, C trains no longer ran on Saturdays and limited morning rush hour service began between 205th Street, Bronx and Utica Avenue, Brooklyn, making local stops on the IND Fulton Street Line.
  • On October 24, 1949, C service was discontinued and during rush hours, CC trains terminated at Broadway – Lafayette Street. Two years later, CC trains were discontinued on Saturdays and in 1954, it would return to the Hudson Terminal.
  • In August 27, 1976, the C train replaced the E train as the local along Fulton Street and to Rockaway Park. It became the only subway line to run through all four boroughs served by the subway. It ran from Bedford Park Boulevard in the Bronx, though Manhattan via Central Park West and Eighth Avenue, into Brooklyn via the Cranberry Street Tunnel, and then on the Fulton Street Line and Jamaica Bay Crossing to Rockaway Park.
  • In May 1985, the IND practice of using double letters to indicate local service was discontinued. The CC service was renamed the C.
  • In 1988, the K train was discontinued, and the C train was extended to run at all times except late nights. It ran local to Euclid Avenue midday and rush hours (the A ran express in Brooklyn during this time), and to World Trade Center during evenings and weekends. During rush hours, it ran to Bedford Park Boulevard and other times, to 145th Street.
  • On October 23, 1992, rush hour C service was cut back from Rockaway Park – Beach 116th Street to Euclid Avenue.
  • Beginning April 1995, C service ran to 168th Street – Washington Heights during midday and weekends. In November, midday service was cut back to 145th Street.
  • On March 1, 1998, the B and C trains switched northern terminals, with C terminating at 168th Street whenever it operates.
  • Starting in 1999, C trains ran local to Euclid Avenue on the weekends and A trains ran express in Brooklyn at all times except late nights.
  • In the wake of the September 11, 2001 attacks, C service was suspended until September 24, 2001. Local service along Central Park West was replaced by the A and D, and the E was extended from Canal Street to Euclid Avenue. Once C service was reinstated, the E began terminating at Chambers St, before running light to World Trade Center.
  • On January 23, 2005, a fire at the Chambers Street signal room crippled A and C service. Initial assessments suggested that it would take several years to restore normal service, but the damaged equipment was replaced with available spare parts, and normal service resumed on April 21.
