New Yorkers, you asked for additional bus and train service, and in July and November, respectively, you’ll get it, the MTA announced Monday.
Starting in July, additional weekend bus service will go into effect in Queens, while added weekday service before and after rush hour will start on the A, D, E and F train lines in November.
“We’re thrilled to add some additional service for subway and bus riders, and much bigger improvements are on the horizon,” NYC Transit President Andy Byford said. “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 toward even more significant improvements to service that will be felt by all of our customers.”
Byford added that a comprehensive plan to modernize and improve all aspects of NYC Transit will be announced on Wednesday.
