The F and G trains — which form the main circulatory system of Brownstone Brooklyn — will be severely disrupted again this weekend, with the G train providing more pain than the usual shuttle buses, the Metropolitan Transportation Authority announced this week.

The agency will again force F riders to use the packed shuttles between Jay Street and Church Avenue. Meanwhile, G train riders are in for a treat: Train service will be normal between Greenpoint Avenue and Bedford-Nostrand stations, but riders who want to go south of Bedford-Nostrand will have to get out and transfer to a G train on the other side of the platform.

Wait, there’s more: G train riders who want to go beyond the Hoyt-Schermerhorn station will have to hop an A or C train in the opposite direction and then take the Church Avenue-bound F shuttle bus.

This is the only weekend that will be this bad, though shuttle buses will return on both lines for an unspecified amount of time starting in about seven or eight weeks, said MTA spokeswoman Deirdre Parker.

The outages on both lines start at 11:30 pm on Friday and continue through 5 am on Monday.

The service cuts are due to track work involving “switch repairs” on both lines, Parker said.
