G Train One Step Closer to Better Service

February 22, 2013 | Andy Cush

The MTA announced it will perform a full line review on the oft-maligned G train–a process that will have officials deeply inspecting the train, and which led to improved service for the F in 2009 and the L in 2011. The review comes after a long effort by straphangers’ advocates, including Democratic state Sen. Daniel Squadron of Brooklyn Heights. “We certainly know where a lot of complaints are,” Squadron said of the announcement. “A full line review is a practical way to make real service improvements within budget limitations.” Transit authority president Thomas Prendergast said the review should be completed by June of this year.
