Queens straphangers will soon be able to take the 7 train farther into Manhattan as the line’s newest station is scheduled to open next month, according to the MTA.

Service at the brand-new station, dubbed 34th Street-Hudson Yards, is scheduled to begin at about 1 p.m. on Sept. 13, the transit agency said.

The $2.42 billion station, located between 10th and 11th avenues, is a 1.5-mile extension from the current last stop of the 7 train in Times Square.

According to published reports, a 12:26 p.m. train departing from the Main Street-Flushing station on Sept. 13 will be the first one to head to the new station from Queens.

The 34th Street-Hudson Yards station will be the first new subway station for the MTA in more than 25 years. It will be the only line south of 59th Street to provide service west of Ninth Avenue, offering riders access to sites such as the Jacob Javits Convention Center, the High Line and Hudson River Park.
