Re: Underbuilt IND?

It's more than just fare collection. Until the LIRR gets to Penn Station or Atlantic Ave, the connections with the subway aren't that great. And once it reaches there, that's it. Great if you work relatively near these stops - not so great otherwise. Compare that with what the Queens Superexpress would have done - gather commuters from eastern Queens, skip past much of the middle, then drop people off in multiple points in Manhattan. It's essentially what services like the A, E, F and even express buses do - local at the source, fast express, then local around the destination.
