G Train Weekend Outages [✜]

It could have been worse, but if you plan your weekends around the G train being in operation, make new plans:

The [MTA…] considered closing the Greenpoint tube on the G train all summer for repair work. Instead, the tunnel will be closed for 12 weekends this year. Service will be replaced with a shuttle bus between Brooklyn and Queens. The Greenpoint tube will likely be closed during the summer of 2014 for additional repairs, the official said.

MTA To Launch Full-Line Review of G Train [✜]

After two state senators and various other elected officials lobbied on its behalf, the G train will receive some special attention now through June 2013 as it undergoes a thorough inspection of ongoing service issues.

Squadron, Dilan and the Riders Alliance get some traction on improving the crosstown local. It is only a study, but getting the MTA to admit that they have a G train is the first step.

Heart the G [✜]

Public Advocate Bill de Blasio is joining the effort to continue the G train extension. Unless the MTA decides otherwise, the extra stops on the Crosstown Local into south Brooklyn are scheduled to go away very soon.

Now that the construction is nearing completion, the M.T.A. is considering discontinuing the G-train extension that enabled riders in Greenpoint to go all the way to Kensington without switching trains.
