Just as much as the users of the (N) in Astoria for me next few weekends, QBL riders, and (L) customers? 

Some people (like you) probably do suffer with the (4) , but a few other changes make commuting worse.

 

That's not to say that honestly these changes are so constant and see no end.

It's almost every weekend with the (4). Its either reduced service north of 125th/Burnside, no service south of Brooklyn Bridge/Bowling, or full local service on Lexington.

I got really mad during the Clark St closure when they sent the (4) full Lexington Local while the (5) zoomed on by...

Since the (D) is running reduced service as well, they can’t suspend the (4) completely and fit 5 pounds of horse manure in a one pound bag.

The (D) is already about 150% of guideline capacity. Cutting the (4) completely would send it to about 400% of guideline since they’re not going to add capacity in the Bronx to compensate (like any normal, sane transit agency would do.)

Its actually easier for them to run two half-assed services instead of one quarter-assed service. Plus it saves them money by cutting service and keeping crews on the bench vs. calling up more crews for OT and beefing up any alternative services.

That (4) one in particular is disgusting because it’s happening all 7 days of the week.

We may have the (D) and the BxM4 three blocks away, but still the (4) really carries well on its own in spite of that.

This likely has to do with the debris that fell from the structure and nearly killed someone.

When Manhattan-bound service is directed over to the Wakefield-bound track at 3 Av-149 St, trains must switch over to the express track just north of Jackson Av, bypassing the station. When the inverse occurs, Wakefield-bound trains can switch over to the proper track just south of Jackson Av, allowing the station to continue to be served fully.

I litterally do not understand why the (N) has to go via Broadway Local when theres already two local services on the track, it makes 0 sense.
