New service changes planned for the G train could give Brooklynites faster service, but may mean more legwork for Queens straphangers.
G train may give Brooklyn riders faster service, Queens riders more legwork
The Transit Authority's 2008 Service Enhancement Program trades increased frequency of G service - up to 50% on weekday evenings and 20% during afternoons - for the elimination of off-peak service to 13 stations across the borough.
The new plan means G service in Queens will end at Court Square in Long Island City, one stop shy of a key location - Queens Plaza on the E, R and V lines. That will force riders to make an extra transfer to get access to Queens Blvd. and Forest Hills.
