Re: The Next Phase Of CBTC Work On The F-Line Starts In Brooklyn

The old days made sense due to the Common sense approach.
Three services served the South Brooklyn route during peak hours.

1) F Coney Island
2) F Kings Highway
3) GG Church Avenue.

The full F line bypassed stations between Kings Hwy and Bergen St,stopping at 18th, Church and 7th Avenue.

CBTC on the Culver makes little sense.
It would be better utilized on a lines like the Brighton or 4th Avenue for the immediate future.
However, perhaps Rolling stock Could be the culprit for the choice.

Queens Blvd is going full CBTC soon, with All R160s running out of Jamaica Shops/Yards.

The F short turn made all stops in Brooklyn after the GG proved insufficient to handle the ridership alone.

The System Worked.

The problem began with selfish ass people being too damn lazy to read What F train they were taking during the peak hour.

If You boarded an Express train that skipped YOUR stop,then it's YOUR FAULT FOR NOT PAYING ATTENTION TO WHAT YOU WERE DOING.

The MTA removed the peak system between Church and Jay Because of these dumb asses.
The Excuse they used was "service cuts due to low ridership".

Even when they did some so called rebuilding work during the 80s,they took away the remaining Express service.
And just recently returned it after YEARS OF LOBBYING.
