It’s been nearly 50 years since commuters going in and out of Brooklyn have had the luxury of hopping on an express train on the F line. Now, it looks like the MTA is finally bringing it back (although it will be limited).
In yesterday’s press release, the MTA announced that come September, four Brooklyn F trains will run express during the morning and evening rush. These trains will run from Jay St-MetroTech to Church Street and will only stop once at Seventh Avenue. This means that usual stops including Park Slope and Carroll Gardens won’t make the cut, which is more than ideal for those making long commutes from Manhattan to Brooklyn and vice versa. Two Manhattan-bound trains will run between 7 and 7:30 am and two Brooklyn-bound trains between 5 and 5:40 pm.
NYCT president stated that after much demand from the Brooklyn community, the express service is finally back and will no doubt be a welcome addition to the thousands that commute daily.
