Why is there no (J) past Chambers on the weekends?

Recommended Posts

I was just wondering why there has almost never been (J) service past Chambers St on the weekends except for GOs. It deprives (2)/(3) riders a direct connection to the (J) at Fulton and inconveniences (A)/© and (4)/(5) riders by making them have to go up to Chambers/Bklyn Bridge

If they can cut costs and believe they aren't inconveniencing too many people...they'll do it.

Well having the (J) head down to fulton and Broad cost money. Plus at Chambers customers can connect with the (4)/(5) for Fulton St and of course Broad St by using wall St instead, which is close to it... So there is no purpose of having it go down to Broad. On weekdays its diffrent as people who are from the Jamaica Line want access too the Financial District area, so the (J) is extended with the (M)(Z).

At the very least Fulton has a myriad of transfers. This is a real nuisance. However, since the stock exchanges are closed on weekends no one would use Broad

You know, Broad and Fulton street on the (J)(M)(Z) are the only two stations not open 24/7

 

They are open 24/5 aka Monday thru Friday

What's weird is that it's open weekdays round-the-clock, from 5 a.m. Monday to 1 a.m. Saturday; other times, it's closed. But how come Fulton and Broad aren't closed during late nights then, and become just a weekday station instead (5 a.m. to 1 a.m., Monday to Friday)? Maybe because even during late nights during the week there is some activity that requires it being open, I guess. But the (4) and (5) do a better job since it serves Midtown and is more busy at any time of the day.

..and you think we don't know that...

 

I'm sure a lot of people here know that. There might be some who don't know that, so I'm throwing that comment out there.

How come they cut back the (M) out of brooklyn during non rush hours?

 

Yeah the (MTA) has lots of money for that. NOPE, the (MTA) doesnt have hardly money to extend this line at all. Thats why you can just take the (M) to Canal and take the (R) there, and for West end you take the (R) to ether Pacific or 36th for the (D)..

 

Its only during rush hrs to allow passangers off South BKLYN to get to the Financl District, as well as downtown bklyn. It use to run to the 9th ave during middays but that was cut in the 2000s

The (J) will probably go down to Broad when the Fulton Street Transit Center will open. I don't know. They should do that, at least for a month.

Actually, Aqueduct Racetrack on the (A) isn't either. In fact, its only open around 50 days a year for 8 hours a day.
