MTA to revive (V) and original (M) train service by early June, plus adds an (F) express

Recommended Posts

Finally the MTA will bring back the (V) plus the original (M)!!! This will be great for subway customers!

 

Beginning Saturday, June 7th customers in Queens, Manhattan, plus Brooklyn will benefit from an increase and reroute in subway service. This will include restoration of (V) and (M) service, plus an increase in (F) service, with a limited peak direction express from Coney Island to Church Ave. The new service enhancements are part of an estimated $7.9 million slated to be invested throughout the city.

 

 

These service additions are part of the MTA’s 2013-2014 Service Enhancement Program aimed at increasing and improving services for customers.  Additions to (M) service will provide a direct link between Bushwick and Downtown Manhattan, operating following the current (M) train schedule.

 

In South Brooklyn, the (F) will now run an express route, in the peak direction between 6:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. on weekdays, stopping at Coney Island-Stillwell Av, West 8 St, Neptune Av, Avenue X, Kings Highway, 18th Av,  and Church Av, then making all (F) stops to Jamaica-179 St.

 

In Queens and Manhattan, a new train line named the (V) will run between Forest Hills-71st Av and 2nd Ave, making all local stops, and following the path of the normal (M), operating under the (M) 's current schedule. “We continue to work hard for our customers by strengthening service whenever we have sustainable resources to do so,” said NYC Transit President Carmen Bianco. “This restoration and addition of subway service will increase the reliability and convenience of trips in Queens, Brooklyn, and Manhattan

Your link gave it away. It's supposed to be news.mta.info, not new.mta.info.

 

It's the link that was on the homepage!

Eh I liked my joke better, since it at least made sense. I did laugh at the " Additions to  (M) service will provide a direct link between Bushwick and Downtown Manhattan" since I know NOBODY cares about that link....
