MTA Says No Complaints So Far About F, G Service Changes
Monday, January 17, 2011
The Metropolitan Transportation Authority said it hasn't received any complaints from F and G train riders in Brooklyn after big service changes went into effect on Monday.
The Manhattan-bound F and the Queens-bound G will bypass the 15th St. station and the Fort Hamilton Parkway Station in Windsor Terrace, due to a construction project that's expected to last through May. The Manhattan-bound F is also skipping the Smith-9th St. station.
That means longer commutes for some riders who must take a subway train deeper into Brooklyn before switching to Manhattan- and Queens-bound F and G trains. Last spring, the MTA eliminated bus routes serving those neighborhoods.
The construction was set to start a week ago but was postponed because of the snow storm. The subway service changes will be in effect through May.
