F Stands for...
If you think the F train service leaves lots to be desired, you are not alone. Overcrowding, re-routing and outages are a constant annoyance for local commuters. When State Senator Daniel Squadron took office in January 2009, he promised to work on the problem and asked the MTA to review the F line. The results were made public in October. Now, the senator is inviting the community to a town hall meeting on the subject. Below is more info from the senator's office:
This past summer, State Senator Squadron called on the MTA to conduct a full line review of the F Train in response to the many constituent complaints he received regarding ongoing service problems. In October, the MTA released the findings from this review in a comprehensive report (which you can find on Senator Squadron's website at: www.squadron.nysenate.gov).
To make this report even more accessible to the public, Senator Daniel Squadron and Community Boards 2 & 6 invite you to attend a Town Hall Meeting about the F train. MTA representatives will discuss the recent report about F train performance, and discuss proposals for improving service.
