No, the R does stop below Canal - it's the N that goes straight to Brooklyn from Canal (during the day).

At 4pm on Saturday from Cortlandt, you should take the R. The confusing thing is that the N will also come through, which is not normal daytime N behavior. Don't take it - once it's past Atlantic, it will blow past all of the R local stops. Wait for the R.

No. Sorry I was confusing! I wasn't really thinking about the stops in Brooklyn beyond Atlantic, since that's farther than I usually go. For me, the N running on the R means I can take either. But since you're going past Atlantic, you still need to wait for the R.

If it's before 11pm, wait for the R. If it's after 11pm, get on the N.

(Or take either and change at/walk from Atlantic. ;)

It depends on when and where you want to go. The N doesn't stop at Union unless it's late night (don't remember the exact hours off the top of my head). The R stops at Union whenever it's running.

Where are you trying to get the train from in lower Manhattan The N only runs to Canal Street then heads over the Manhattan bridge until late night.

Yes, it makes all stops. I used to live out in Bay Ridge and took the N late nights to get home from Union Hall in Park Slope.

Thanks Erica - does it make all stops in Brooklyn? Like Union Street for example.

Yes, the R runs on weekends, just not late nights (which I think is 11pm to 5:30am). BUT, the N picks up the R local stops late night, so it's like it's running...

However, I think this coming weekend the N is running on the R b/w BK and Manhattan all weekend. (It usually skips from Canal to Atlantic but it will be making those lower Manhattan R stops.)

So, basically, if you're at a station like Cortlandt that's usually R only and an N comes through, get on it. If you're at a station where both the N and R usually stop, and an N comes through, pay attention/ask the conductor which line it's running on to be safe.

Hi all - now that the R train is back up and running into Brooklyn, does anybody know if it makes all stops in Brooklyn, on SATURDAYS? The timetables on MTA's site are confusing.
