The C Eighth Avenue Local is a service of the New York City Subway. It is colored blue the route sign (either on the front and/or side - depending on equipment used) and on station signs and the NYC Subway map, as it represents a service provided on the IND Eighth Avenue Line through Manhattan. The normal C service pattern is from 168th Street in Washington Heights, Manhattan, to Euclid Avenue in City Line, Brooklyn, running local in Manhattan and Brooklyn to complement the A. C service runs at all times except late nights, when A service replaces it.

1967-1979 bullet (in a circle)
  • In 1986, the IND practice of using double letters to indicate local service was discontinued. The CC service was renamed the H.
  • 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.
  • On March 1, 1998, the B and C trains switched northern terminals, with C terminating at 168th Street.
  • Starting in 1999, C trains ran local to Euclid Avenue and A trains ran express in Brooklyn at all times except late nights.
  • 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.
