Least crowded IRT line

Recommended Posts

Hmm...hard to think about and choose, but it would be the (3) or the (5).

 

 

The 5 even though as a supplement to the 4, gets packed during the rush at 180st. I took the 2 train from 241st to Hoyt St. in Brooklyn. The 2 was packed until 180st. The people left the 2 in waves, and that 5 train already packed, was crush-loaded then.

 

The 3 train I would go with.

I've seen that happen very often. My home station is below 180th, and although it's serviced by both the (2) and the (5), the (5) skips it during rush hours. The only option is the (2), and by the time it reaches my stop, it's already beyond packed.

Well a few times I was on a crowded 3 train, however most of the time, the 3 is pretty empty since 1. most of the people get off at Utica for the 4, and 2. most of the people get off at 96 Street for the 1 and it does not travel as far as the 2. If I am going to 135 Street and I want a seat and a crowded 2 comes first, I'll pass up the 2 and wait for a 3.

I was at 149th St./Grand Concourse around 2:15 this afternoon, waiting to come home on an uptown (2), and the train was so crowded, I couldn't get on it.

 

I had to wait for the next train, which was a (5) local.
