BROOKLYN - The Metropolitan Transportation Authority has launched a new website for those who are frequent users of the subway on the weekends.

Starting today, the MTA's website will change every weekend, becoming a detailed home page that will allow riders to see how weekend work will affect subway service. Officials hope that it will prevent many straphangers from having to wait at outdoor stations unnecessarily.

The website will allow riders to click on a subway line to get a view of service changes or to check for service updates by borough. If there is a service interruption, the station will be highlighted by blinking icons.

The weekender homepage will also provide an electronic view of the neighborhood maps that are posted inside subway stations.
