    • LocationNear a station in Central Queens where three (E) trains terminate late in the AM Rush Hour on weekdays (at 8:27, 9:02, 9:13 from WTC, arriving at my home station at 9:09, 9:44 and 9:56 respectively) and was the terminal for E and EE trains from its opening on December 31, 1936 to April 24, 1937. This station is also home to R160 or R46 layups during the evening and weekend hours.

    A "50%" reduction in service is not true as they still have the (G) train. They should try to reopen Bergen Street lower level though

    As someone who takes the (F) express in Queens to/from Manhattan, I don't see any appeal or benefits of the line running express in Brooklyn. It's still slow and excruciating to get into the city despite the (F) skipping local stops between Forest Hills and 21st-Queensbridge because of the massive delays due to congestion on the tracks. In fact it's very common to see people on a Manhattan bound (F) transfer to the (E) across the platform at Union Turnpike because the (E) is faster and more direct.

    No its totally true... It's a 50% reduction in Manhattan bound service which the majority of commuters at those stations are looking for. The (G) won't help them at all...

    They can use the (A) © at Hoyt schermerhorn, so not a total loss.

    I tried (G) to (A) © once when there were issues on the (F), its terrible.

    Doesn't it say that in the Culver Sta. Renewal project that the study would be continued later on and this would not add onto the F exp study?

    Tought these (F) express discussions died off a long time ago LOL. From my experience there is already occasional express service on the (F) during rush hour and honestly there is a possibility it can be helpful. The train doesn't get excessively crowded that much during the rush usually a good amount of people get off to transfer to the (A) and © at Jay st metro tech.
