F-ing express!

Dear Editor,

The maintenance planned for F and G lines is nice, but remember between 1968 and 1976, NYC Transit routinely used the middle track rush hours south of the Church Avenue Station for Manhattan-bound F subway line trains between Kings Highway and Borough Hall.

During the p.m. peak, it was used in reverse for Brooklyn-bound express service.

With future completion of Communication Based Train Control in 2022, NYC Transit could decide to extend rush-hour express service by operating more trains to stations south of Church Avenue using the middle track.

Manhattan-bound express service could run until 1 p.m., while Brooklyn-bound express service could start at 2 p.m. This could save thousands of commuters even more time.

More people work staggered hours rather than the old traditional 9 to 5 jobs.

Assignment of additional subway cars to the F line would require a minimum of additional operating costs and might make for a great MTA investment for improvement of service.

Why not take advantage of this underutilized asset upon completion of CBTC on this subway line?

Sincerely

Larry Penner

Great Neck
