As the station rehab and renovation work at Bleecker St. and Broadway/Lafayette ambles toward its conclusion, the MTA is gearing up to add transfer signage to the station. For the first time, riders from the IND lines that run underneath the IRT tracks will be able to take advantage of a free, in-system transfer to the uptown 6. As folks who come from the areas serviced by four trains with widely divergent routes in Brooklyn can soon take advantage of this new transfer, my guess is that it will prove to be a popular spot for East Side-bound commuters.
An eagle-eyed reader snapped the above photo earlier today, and I wanted to share it. It provides a great glimpse of a work in progress and a transfer to come. Slowly but steadily, the MTA has worked to make obvious transfers more convenient. Now if only the authority would connect the G with the J/M/Z lines in Williamsburg.
