Re: Rush hour J to 9 Av

I'd like to see the J go back down to Broad Street on weekends, but if you look at the current load factors, they empty out a lot at Essex, some continuing to Canal, and pretty sparse to Chambers.

Nonetheless, it ought to connect to the new Fulton St facility, even if it means terminating there, and deadheading past Broad Street, which otherwise requires another station clerk, to relay. Evenso, they would have to put out another train set.

By getting the J out of Chambers, they could send the M there as a cheap extension from its current shuttle status, rather than run to Queens Plaza or Forest Hills, since most would transfer to the F at Essex. The J is often SRO by Myrtle Avenue.
