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.

I agree about the J should go to Broad, but do remember that the train emptying out is because it doesn't go anywhere. If people wanted the Fulton transfers, or even Broad St, they wouldn't be on the train by the time it gets to Chambers as they would have had to get off elsewhere. So it's like a self fulfilling prophecy that the train is empty by Canal, as it "doesn't go anywhere".

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.

That would confuse passengers. There aren't many lines that go to totally different places on the weekend or nights. It either should go to Manhattan on it's normal route, or just leave it as the PITA shittle it is now.
