Fed up No. 7 train passengers on Tuesday called on the MTA to give Queens commuters a smoother ride.
At a rally underneath the elevated 40th St.-Lowery St. station, riders and Councilman Jimmy Van Bramer (D-Queens) called on the agency to give the line a top-to-bottom review — the kind of audit that led to improved service on the F, G and L lines in the past.
"What we have witnessed nearly every single day are significant delays, significant problems with trains bypassing stations, crowded platforms," Van Bramer said.
No. 7 train riders have been waiting for better service for years as crews repair equipment and install a modern signal system that would let the MTA squeeze more trains on the tracks — work that requires weekend disruptions.
In the meantime, the day-to-day commuting headaches continue to pile up, causing crowding along the busy line.
(While we wait, let's keep building.)
