Re: Subway route letter uses

Well,the KK was the "14a" designation for the Canarsie branch (Rockaway Parkway to Canal St).
The JJ/14 was the Broadway Brooklyn Short line, Crescent St or Atlantic Ave to Canal St. Later, when Skip stop service began..most morning and evening peak trains went to/from 168th St and Canal.

JJ/15 was the Jamaica Local,which ran non peak and J/15 Jamaica Express, peak only.

This complex operation was to say in the least, sickening,since you had to keep track of what time of day you were traveling.

When the Chrystie St changes took place, it really didn't get much better until the KK became official.

The AM and PM peak had confusing travel options due to the QJ/RJ Intergration.. which didn't make sense.
Basically, the RJ Should have been the Primary through service... with the QB remaining the Brighton local supplimented by rush hour QJ service.
Today, the Fourth Ave line Still needs that thru Nassau St service due to the deplorable R train situation.

It remains to be seen if the MTA will listen to its riders service demands..
