An L of an Improvement!
Great news for transit riders: the MTA heeded our call and will increase L train service beginning this Sunday!
It's no surprise that many of you have reached out to me about overcrowded, infrequent and delayed L trains. That's why, last year, I asked the MTA to do a full-line review -- and, with that review, urged the agency to increase the number of L trains it runs on weekends and weekdays.
Now, beginning this Sunday, we'll see 7 additional L trains each Sunday, 16 each weekday, and 11 each Saturday. Riders tired of the crushing crowds and overflowing trains will now have an L trip a lot less likely to feel like hell!
Help spread the news via Facebook and Twitter. And join me Monday, June 10th, at 10:30AM at the Bedford Avenue L stop - at the corner of Bedford Ave and North 7th Street - to celebrate the new service.
