MTA Increasing G Train Service Starting Today

Mere weeks before they snatch G train service away–like Lucy with that football–the MTA has decided to actually increase G train service during rush hour.

McBrooklyn reports that following a push from State Senators Daniel Squadron and Martin Dilan and the Riders Alliance, there will be a 25 percent increase in G train service from 3 pm to 9 pm during weekdays starting today, June 9. That means less waiting for the 125K who live and work off that line.

Of course, this good news comes with a well-known caveat: G train service between Court Square and Greenpoint Avenue will be suspended for five weeks starting on July 26. So, make sure to take advantage of this improvement while you still can.

    And hey -weekends are increasingly busy in GreenPoint/Williamsburg, and beyond.

    The G train used to be a full fledged 8 car train, that ran reliably and frequently all the way between downtown Brooklyn and Forest Hills Queens. This, with an easy transfer for Manhattan trains at Queens Plaza. That was then….

    Any G train “improvements” are merely recovering some of what was lost over the years.
