Re: EXCLUSIVE PHOTOS: New Jerome line AM express starts test phase on June 8

And cutting the Z would have left the entire line servied with J trains running every 10 minutes, which would be unacceptable. So any Z-less schedule would have necessitated many more J trains to be added. Before the Z was introduced the J ran at a maximum of 6 minute headways. That's 10 TPH. The J/Z currently uses 12 TPH. That's why cutting the Z would have been pointless, as the actual savings would have been minimal.

8 TPH is also not enough. They used this headway in the aftermath of 9/11 when the J and M ran to 95th St and Coney Island respectively and the trains were just too crowded (and demand then was less).
