Re: Subway route letter uses

I agree. I work in the downtown core of Manhattan. So my usual trip to work and back is the SIM 32 bus. But I frequently have a need to go to the NYU area, and my primary doctor is near 4th Avenue (Brooklyn), and my wife often needs to Court Street. So I use the R with some frequency.

Even with a 600' train (10 R160s or 8 R46s), it's just awful. Slow. Infrequent, and often crowded. The crowds result from the long waits between delayed and skipped intervals. Say I'm traveling between Whitehall and 8th- I might be the first person (not counting homeless) to reach the platform. But after a 12-15 minute wait, it's packed. The W doesn't help all that much because they clearly only send it immediately after an R.

So even a shorter train that actually ran reliably would definitely be a better service.
