Back in July, State Senator Daniel Squadron asked the MTA to undertake comprehensive studies of weekend service on the L and F trains. He said schedules were obviously in need of adjustment to account for huge increases in demand in Williamsburg and the Lower East Side.
Today, the senator announced the MTA has agreed to add more trains on the L line, beginning sometime next year. Unfortunately the LES is not quite so fortunate. According to a news release from Squadron’s office, the transit agency “concluded that a weekend service increase on the F train is not possible at this time.”
In 2009, the MTA conducted a study of the F Line, at Squadron’s request, and agreed to make a variety of service improvements based on what they learned from that survey.
