The Metropolitan Transportation Authority will not add V train cars to the G train, according to transit activists involved in negotiations with the M.T.A. over just such an addition. On March 4, Jim Trent, transportation chair of the Queens Civic Congress, and John Leon of the advocacy group Save the G, met with M.T.A. representatives to discuss moving cars from the V to the G. The agency's response? Out of the question.
G Train Riders to MTA: Give Us Some V Cars! MTA to G Train Riders: No
Crappy to MTA: Leave the V the way it is. It's the only way I can make it into work, because the E is always too crowded.
