June 27, 2010, service cuts.

Posted by Chicago44 on Sat Jun 27 20:10:12 2020

It was 10 years ago on June 27, 2010 there were service cuts, however, one of the cuts which was the for the M train in Southern Brooklyn to be eliminated & rerouted it to replace the V train on 6th Av & to restore the old 6th Av/Broadway-Brooklyn service for the first time since August 1976 was a big improvement for Northern Brooklyn, Ridgewood & Middle Village, Queens riders.

Ridership has increased along this segment of the M train, it has lasted longer that the old K train did prior to elimination in August 1976, gives riders a one direct ride to Midtown Manhattan & reduces the overcrowding on the nearby L train as well as riders on the L riders won't have to transfer at the overcrowded 6 Av, Union Sq & 8 Av stations to reach Midtown & reduces the overcrowding at Delancey & Essex St to the F train.

I hope one day that the W train will be extended into Brooklyn.
