A prediction was made that after the swap, the would keep the remaining R142As they have as they are not part of the conversion. However, in late 2017, a decision was made that all R142A subway cars were to be maintained at Mosholu Yard on the .

The swap was finished in May 22-24th 2018 with R142A 7596-7610 moving to Mosholu Yard while, 2081-5, 2091-5 will be heading to Westchester Yard. With Second Av subway running, ridership dropped but number varies. Train total (run as well) on the dropped by 2 after a year with SAS on the . There's an up and down result between the and . The is fully R188s due to future CBTC. These cars gave more room to passengers b/c of the wider doors and more trains were added b/c of the 34 St-Hudson Yards extension that opened in September 2015. However, the downgraded on equipment as seats and room to enter/exit the train are not a lot like it was before (and SAS, mentioned as well as avoiding heavy congestion). Transition of using only R62As resulting in moving some cars from the to that line. Although, as of 5/22/18, the positive change is that car fleets on each line are organized by number and type of yard to be maintained.

    Lexington Av line was fully NTTs and that's when the had R62As and SAS being built. Now (in the present), with the making stops along 2nd Av on the East Side, the amount of trains the had was reduced but not much (Fleet change was also an observation).

    That set is staying on the Local portion of 7 Av. line. Adding that set, the has the total trains in general.

    They'll probably stay. They're filling in for the R142A loss gap.

    R188 Discussion Thread

    Here's a thought, with the just being R62As, will the MTA restore the reduced runs back on the schedule since they do have enough trains now? ---- Also, before SAS occured, the had 45-46 trains total but now, up to 43. The train total was shortened by 3.
