Heh...subtle. They also moved the location of the South Ferry station from the old one, to represent the location of the new station (and obviously added the xfer to Whitehall)

The Brooklyn Bus Map has not been updated with the (G) train extension as well. they should really start doing that now. all (MTA) information should be accurate.

Few things to bring up:

 

1. http://mta.info/nyct/service/GserviceChanges.htm shows that the Culver Viaduct will be under repair for 4 years. Does this mean that the (G) extension won't last long?

 

2. http://mta.info/nyct/service/gline.htm shows that the (G)'s strip map has been updated.

 

3. This may be old, but how come Avenue U and Neck Road on the (Q) doesn't say that only the northbound platforms are open?

Well let me bring up what your link said:

This new extended (G) route for the will be in effect for approximately 4 years.
. They didn't say the construction will last for 4 years, it said the (G) will only be extended for 4 years. So you already have your answer. As of now, this isn't permanent.

The reason behind the (G)'s extension though is because of the reconstruction of the Culver Viaduct, which includes rehabilitation to the Smith-Ninth Streets and Fourth Avenue stations, which will also see renovation of the express tracks (notice how at Smith-Ninth there's a ton of stuff on the tracks, so they can't use them now).

makes me wonder if the (MTA) would ever build an Express-Local Station on the Viaduct, which that i doubt.

Exactly my point. The (MTA) is only extending the (G) for construction purposes, not for a service increase. The (G) does not have to necessarily terminate at Church throughout the entire project. I'm sure during the later phases of this project it would be possible for the (G) to once again, terminate at Smith & 9th.

In 2013, riders are going to fight (I'll emphasize that: FIGHT) to keep the (G) at Church Avenue because they're going to want (F) express service as well. Don't count on the (G) going back to Smith-Ninth Street because the MTA will be downgrading service. They've done it before, but riders will not let the MTA fall through this one that easily!

Actually a lot of Park Slope residents don't want the (F) running express because they will lose their 1 seat ride to Manhattan. The only ones who will, would be the ones living in Kensington, or by 7th Avenue.

For it to be a downgrade, there has to be an upgrade to begin with. Yesterday I took the (G) at Hoyt-Schemerhorn instead of my usual (A) to the (F) at Jay St and I quickly was reminded of why I stopped taking the (G). It still has long intervals between trains. There has no been no increase of trains on the (G), simply an extension of the line. Queens bound the (G) is still packed coming from Smith-9th.

I guess I should stick with the A to F transfer @ Jay unless the G comes to Hoyt-Schemerhorn like right away! I tend to come from Rockaway Blvd from time to time to go to Bay Ridge.

You got the G in the AM yet or the F always keep on coming 1st?

 

 

BTW The new Brooklyn Bus Map is out as I got 1 yesterday when I got on the B44 LTD bus and it does have the G to Church Ave!

During the morning I take a different route than my evening route. I take the (R) to Pacific St ( or the (D) or (N) to Pacific if they are coming across the platform) to a New Lots (3) train and take that to Rockaway Avenue and take the B60 to Canarsie from there (Yes, long commute but I don't have to walk so many stairs). On the afternoon, I take the (L) to the (A) to the (F) to the (R) so I decided to try the (G) to 4th Avenue. I would have been better off taking the (A) to Jay St for the (F). When the (G) finally showed up, as it was approaching Bergen St, it stopped because the (F) was crossing ahead. Would have been better off with he (F). So if time is of an essence to you, take the (F).

And I'm sure also, because they will not want to lose the transfer at 4th Ave. That's one reason why the (MTA) sometimes does not implement nonessential possible service changes that would only be temporary. Because they know the riders will become used to it and not want it cut back when whatever project is over.

Ah all right! Always thought the PM route was the same as the AM however that sounds a bit like me in a way back when I was attending training school except the difference was that the AM route was for the most part the same however I always had a different way to go home in the PM(If I need to go straight home that is in the PM)
