Straphangers rejoice: more subway cars are being added to several lines, effective June 2014.

The affected lines will be to weekday rush hour trips along the 2, 3, 4, 5, A, E, F, and L routes, according to the MTA’s November 2013 Transit Agenda report.

The changes include:

  • six additional trains scheduled between 8-11 p.m. on the 2 and 3 lines from Flatbush and New Lots Avenues into Manhattan and the Bronx,
  • two additional trains for the 9:30-10:30 a.m. rush on the 4 and 5 lines,
  • one additional L train between 8-9 a.m.,
  • seven additional L trains between 7-11 p.m.,
  • two additional E and F trains between 6-6:30 a.m.,
  • three additional evening rush trains (5-8 p.m.) and one less afternoon rush train on the A line.

Some weekend additions will also be made to the L line, with four trains each added between 9-11 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays.

“Schedule adjustments on routes are part of a continuing effort to review and revise subway schedules so that they accurately meet customer demand and are in compliance with MTA Board-adopted loading guidelines,” explained MTA spokesperson Deirdre Parker about the decision.
