L Train to Get More Weekend Service

May 16, 2014 | Andy Cush

Good news for L train riders: the MTA plans to add 33 round trips on Saturdays and 22 on Sundays to the 8th Avenue-Canarsie line, hopefully making traveling through Brooklyn on the weekends a little easier. Three weeknight trips will be added as well.

Of course, the L isn’t the only crowded train, even if it does seem to command a large share of the MTA’s attention. Referring to the “subhuman” crowding on the A and 4/5/6 lines, Gene Russianoff of the Straphangers Campaign summed this up nicely to the Times“What of the rest of us subway hordes?”
