The MTA will conduct a full-line review of the A and C line after urging from advocates, officials said Thursday.
"NYC Transit staff expects that the upcoming studies will also produce new insights and suggestions for improving the subway system," MTA head Thomas Prendergast wrote in a letter to state Sen. Daniel Squadron's office. The review, first reported by the New York Post, is expected to be completed "sometime next year."
Both Squadron and the Riders Alliance urged the MTA to review the line, which is the longest in the subway system.
"The C train is notoriously crowded and infrequent, especially during the morning rush hour," John Raskin, executive director of the Riders Alliance said in a statement.
The A and C typically have longer average wait times than other lines.
