The A train
The (A) train is the 8th Avenue Express. It runs between 207 Street Manhattan through 8th Avenue, into Brooklyn via Fulton Street and to/from Far Rockaway via Rockaways all times.
Also during the day additional A train service also starts at 207 Street Manhattan with the same route as above, but this time goes to and from Lefferts Boulevard.
Basically all A train service is the same but the two branches split east of Rockaway Boulevard in the Ozone Park Section of Queens.
Special rush hour service runs to/from Rockaway Park in Queens.
The A train is the longest route in the NYC System, traveling 31 miles along its route, from 207 Street Manhattan to Far Rockaway in Queens.
