    I noticed for the 6th ave fastrack the D will go to whitehall running 2 sections. Why cant the mta operate the d like this:

    1)205th street to 2nd ave
    2)atlantic ave to stillwell.

    Or they could operate the D to grand st and turn around to brooklyn.

  2. Alek says:

    I think that since the E is rerouted on the F line. The MTA should repaint the 5th ave/53rd street. It is full of peeling paint! Since no trains are running there the workers have a huge advantage painting that station really ugly.

  3. Thanks, that was helpful.

    why would there be “no G trains between Hoyt-Schermerhorn Sts and Church Ave due to station painting at Classon Ave and Clinton-Washington Aves”?????

    classon and c-w are not between hoyt and church

    *scratches head*

    • Brighton Rider says:

      Trains are single-tracking to Hoyt St to avoid the station painting, so they can’t continue to Church Av.

    • I was on the F this morning around 6 am. There were so many people just sitting at Bergen waiting for the G. The conductor kept the doors open and SCREAMED at them to get on and change at Jay for the A and then get the G at Hoyt-Schermerhorn. They just sat there. Maybe they are still there waitng for the G.

      • George says:

        Why were they waiting for the G at 6 on a Saturday morning?

      • Jerrold says:

        I wonder if maybe they did not speak English, and so could not understand him.

        This reminds me of those years when the N train was NOT using the express platform at Canal St. But, that platform had to be kept open because it is the only route for transferring between two of the other lines there. Sometimes people who were walking by, making that transfer, would see some Chinese man sitting on a bench, waiting for an N train to Brooklyn that would never come.
