The E Eighth Avenue Local is a service of the New York City Subway. It is colored blue on 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. Its normal service pattern is from Jamaica Center–Parsons/Archer in Jamaica, Queens, to World Trade Center in Lower Manhattan, running express through Queens and local through Manhattan. Limited rush hour service serves Jamaica–179th Street, Sutphin Boulevard, Parsons Boulevard, and 169th Street to supplement the F. During late nights, the service runs local in Queens. Two local stops in eastern Queens are also served on weekends.

  • On December 15, 1940, service on the entire Sixth Avenue Line began. The E terminated at Broadway–Lafayette Street. South of that station, it was replaced by the F train.
  • In 1956, service was extended to Euclid Avenue during rush hours as a local.
  • On August 27, 1976, E service was eliminated from Brooklyn and terminated at World Trade Center.
  • In 1997, E service began running local in {{Wikipedia reference|Queens during late nights.
  • Service on the E was affected by the September 11, 2001 attacks because its terminal station is at the northeastern corner of the World Trade Center site. Service for the line was changed so that it went to Euclid Avenue in Brooklyn as the local on the IND Fulton Street Line at all times except late nights, replacing the temporarily suspended C service—the third time it had served the borough. This had happened in 1976, and again in early 2000 during the replacement of track switches at the World Trade Center station. On September 21, 2001, C service was restored, and E service was cut to Canal Street (since World Trade Center would be closed until January).
  • On December 16, 2001, the connection from the 63rd Street Tunnel to the Queens Boulevard Line opened, and F trains were rerouted via this connector to travel between Manhattan and Queens. Some rush hours E trains now run to 179th Street.
