More Trains Will be Added to 4 NYC Subways Lines This Year
Four subway lines, and one bus line, are about to run a bit smoother with better service.

On Monday, NYC Transit President, Andy Byford, announced that trains will be added to the A, D, E and F lines on weekdays mostly during the hours immediately following or preceding rush hours.

The subway additions will go into effect in November. However, the weekend bus additions in Queens will go into effect in July. Of the changes, Byford says:

“We’re thrilled to add some additional service for subway and bus riders, and much bigger improvements are on the horizon. We regularly tweak schedules based on changes in demand and operating conditions, and the comprehensive plan I’m announcing this week will outline the path towards even more significant improvements to service that will be felt by all of our customers.”

Here is the subway service that will be added in November (applies to round trips):
