Re: Bedford Av (L) stop - going to get real worse

Time to add more trains. They should reinstate the service where every other train only goes as far as Myrtle and then turns around, allowing at least some passengers from Myrtle to Bedford to get seats.

Where've you been? They've been short turning every other L at Myrtle during AM/PM rush ever since they finished the signaling project.

The PROBLEM with the L line is that 8 Av is a very ineffective terminal for the level of service they are trying to run. What they really need to do is tunnel another block over, so that trains can enter 8 Av at full speed. L's get backed up as far as Graham Ave sometimes, so that it can actually take 20-30 min to go from Bedford to Union Square because they have to wait at every station, and sometimes under the river, for congestion to clear up, which is the second reason I try to avoid the L whenever possible in the morning.
