The MTA has proposed adding more trains on its most crowded lines to decrease waiting times, the agency said Friday.
Additional service would be added on the 7, L, 2 and M lines, mostly during off-peak hours, which showed the highest ridership growth last year, according to the MTA. The agency plans to add the new trains in December.
The most significant service increase would come on the L line, as it experienced the greatest ridership growth at all hours in 2014, the MTA said.
Under the MTA proposal, seven additional L train round trips would be added on weekdays between 10:30 a.m. and 2 p.m.
The 7 and 2 lines would also both get two additional round trips on weeknights under the plan. The new rides would be added between 8 p.m. and 10:20 p.m. on the 7 line, and between 8:30 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. on the 2 line.
The M line would also see one more round trip added on weekdays, bringing the wait time to roughly 7 minutes between trains running from 9 a.m. and 9.30 a.m., according to the agency's press release.
