Re: IND Crosstown (G) Line Gets R160 New Tech Trains Good News For (G) Train Riders

Posted by gbs on Tue Oct 12 05:59:29 2021, in response to IND Crosstown (G) Line Gets R160 New Tech Trains Good News For (G) Train Riders, posted by Transportation Hub on Mon Oct 11 16:07:46 2021.


The only good news for G riders will be longer trains, not newer trains of the same short length. This may be good news for the train crews, especially the conductors, but the riders will still have to run down the platforms to catch the trains, and walk long distances to exit. The increase in the number of doors will have minimal impact, because the G trains are rarely packed and station dwell time is almost never an issue.

What would also help would be to speed up the timers between Court Sq and 21 St. The trains that have to switch tracks (in either direction) must crawl painfully slowly through the middle track with all the lunar whites. Lucky for the Court Sq dispatchers that they don't have to run too many trains per hour.
