- The L Train is Reliable [✜]
The Straphangers Campaign ranked the L train as the best in system. It's scheduled every three-and-a-half minutes in the morning rush, comes on time, has regular, audible announcements, fewer breakdowns, and is cleaner than the average subway lines... The Straphanger's put a $1.40 value on an L train ride. The one drawback -- it's nearly impossible to get a seat at rush hour.
The L was also top rated in the announcement category and in the on-time category (tied with the J/Z, actually).
I don't take the L often enough to say if service has improved dramatically, but if it has, that is really great news.
