How many riders utlize the shuttle and the (G)?

Recommended Posts

The shuttles are mostly up to 1/2 lenght and few cars. It's also a back and forth route on 1 borough and (G) is mostly Brooklyn wit 2 Queens stops.

 

1.So, do u ride the Rockaway Park Shuttle often? since its full length or 4?

2.Also, do u think (G) should be 4 cars or 8?

 

*Also, wat r the cars used for the Rockaway Park Shuttle?

Yeah we already worked it out and we said that the (G) won't get 8 cars unless it gets extended as a longer Crosstown extension in the Bronx or a Manhattan extension or onto the Culver Line as a local. Which would be unreliable for riders so there will be no way the (G) would have 8 car trains.

 

And the thread for the subject is still active so you could have went and looked for it.

 

To answer your other questions:

The Rockaway Park Shuttle uses 4 car R46 trains

 

The (G) was never built to be this Manhattan line. It was built to carry people crosstown without needing to head to Manhattan and it is doing a good job just doing that.

 

As of 2009 about an estimated 800,000 people use the (S)

In the summer, the Rockaway Park (S) runs 8-car trains. While most R44s are on their way out, I don't know if only R46s are on the (S) now.

 

The (H) is 100% R46 and the 8 Car (H) only runs on summer weekends

Why is it necessary to start another G line thread and rehash to same "arguments" all over again where there is an ongoing thread with 150 replies?
