Re: Increase in L train service

The degree to which they achieve what the BMT managed to do two generations ago at 8th St is entirely up to the management and the degree to which they trust the black boxes driving and the train making the stop. If they decide they can run that equipment in the same manner the station was utilized once upon a time, then we'll see if they're capable of turning 24 trains per hour at the station. If they prove to be a bit more risk averse, as I'm sure many here would expect, then we'll see a somewhat lower utilization of the 8th St Station.

From what I understand, operation into the terminals is under operator not ATO control. If this is the case, then that trumps all your arguments regarding trusting machines over operators, etc.
