Jay Street–MetroTech is a station on the IND Eighth Avenue Line and IND Sixth Avenue Line of the New York City Subway. Located on Jay Street between Fulton Mall and Myrtle Promenede, near MetroTech Center, it is served by the A and F trains (all times), and by the C and R trains (all times except late nights). The full-time exit is at Willoughby Street, with auxiliary part time exits at MetroTech, and Fulton Mall.
The station has four tracks, with two island platforms. A and C trains use the center "express tracks," and F trains use the outer "local" tracks. There are switches just north of the station, permitting Eighth Avenue Line trains to switch to the Sixth Avenue Line, or vice versa. These switches are often used for construction re-routes, with trains switching back to their usual routes at West Fourth Street.
The Lawrence Street–MetroTech station on the BMT Fourth Avenue Line is directly beneath. A free transfer between the stations is planned as part of the Metropolitan Transportation Authority's 2005–2009 Capital Program. IND "money trains" make their deposits here, just as the IRT and BMT divisions make theirs from Lawrence Street.
