F train express service begins
Limited F train express service began Monday in Brooklyn to the delight of some local electeds, who hopped on the inaugural ride.
Starting Monday, two peak-hour Manhattan-bound F trains will run express from Church Avenue to Jay Street-Metrotech between 7 a.m. and 7:30 a.m. A pair of peak-hour Coney Island-bound trains will do the same between 5 p.m. and 5:40 p.m., the MTA said.
Local Brooklyn councilmembers Chaim Deutsch and Kalman Yeger and Assemblymember William Colton snagged seats on the first F train of its kind — and were all smiles in a blurry selfie they snapped while aboard. (It remains to be seen whether or not Councilmember Yeger’s attempt to popularize the term “#Fexpress” will take hold.)
