Last hours to sign the F train petition

By · Published in 2007

We’re coming down to the wire on the F Express/V local petition. Gary Reilly of Brooklyn Streets created the petition a few weeks back. I analyzed his plan two weeks ago and reiterated my support yesterday.

Well, now we’re coming down the wire. Gary, as he writes here, is delivering the petition to the MTA board in person tomorrow morning at 9:30 a.m. during their meeting, and we want you to sign it before then. Gary writes:

The desire for change is palpable; I put a petition for better service on the F&V online, and nearly 2500 people signed on in under two weeks! People want better transit options. We need dedicated streams of funding for transit, and a re-imagining of the system that looks at the historical inefficiencies left behind by the disjointed history of subway construction and brings the system to a level of service better than any city in the world.

Demand it! I’ll be delivering the petition to the MTA Board tomorrow morning at 9:30 sharp. The meeting is open to public comment, but you must arrive by 9:00 to sign up.

So go forth, subway riders, and demand better service. The petition, currently at 2453 signatures now that I’ve added my name to it, can be found here. Let’s crack 2500 before Gary brings it to the MTA tomorrow.

    Thank you Ben. It’s worth noting two Councilmen, Community Board 6, and the Downtown Brooklyn partnership are all in support of this move.

    Look for a press conference on Thursday. I’ll give you a full report on my venture to MTA tomorrow. The important thing is, people are talking about this. We have a real chance here.
