As a convenience to everyone (this should come in handy for the What If? thread), I'll post the weekday TPH for every subway line in this convenient place.

(A): 12.6

(C): 6.5

(E): 15

(B): 8.3

(D): 10

(F): 15

(M): 7.5

(N): 8.6

(Q): 10

(R): 10

(L): 17.1

Gorgor already posted it inside the thread. Just sayin', ;)

 

Hmmm...His calculations are different from mine:

 

Trains Per Hour (tph) Chart:

I just thought that I'd post a handy chart with the listings of trains per hour (tph). These numbers are taken from the busiest service time, mainly the AM rush. I'm pretty sure my calculations are right, maybe off by 1, but it's a nice and handy thing to use.

 

(1) - 20tph

(2) - 12tph

(3) - 10tph

 

(4) - 12tph

(5) - 18tph

(6) - 20tph

 

(7) - 25tph

 

(A) - 18tph

(C) - 6tph

(E) - 12tph

 

(B) - 10tph

(D) - 10tph

(F) - 12tph

(M) - 8tph

 

(N) - 10tph

(Q) - 8tph

(R) - 8tph

 

(G) - 7tph

 

(J)(Z) - 12tph (combined)

 

(L) - 18tph

The (A) is at least 18 TPH at morning rush, and at least 15 TPH at evening rush...

 

Yeah, your calculations for the (A) are way off...

While there is a brief interval of 18-tph (A) service in the morning, it's usually smaller than that. IIRC it's close to 14-15 tph in the peak of the AM rush.

Where did you hear that??

 

 

Look at the (A) schedule, 16-17 TPH is more of a reasonable estimate.

I don't know why you used the 2011 schedules when the latest 2012 ones can be found online. During the AM rush, northbound (A) trains run every 3-4 minutes.

Hmmm...Now I'm looking at this site instead:

http://boerumhillscott.com/transit/TripsFromStation.php

It shows about 9 TPH northbound on the (A) from Rockaway Blvd...That's obviously wrong. I don't know why...

Hmm...are these average intervals? E.g. the B and D trains: I can't imagine how such frequencies (8.6 vs 10) could possibly be synchronised on the segments where those lines share tracks...
