L train outage = M trains go to Upper East Side
For the L Train Shutdown, the MTA is not planning on increasing M service to LIC/Court Square (where a huge influx of G train riders will be trying to transfer and continue to Manhattan).
Instead, they will be sending the M train to the Upper East Side late nights and weekends - cutting the service to Court Square in half.
This is also a continuation of their draconian cuts to Queens Blvd service when they killed the V train and cut the G back to Court Square.
This is purely a move born of cheapness - they can save a few pennies by not having to run the M all the way to Forest Hills.
Check out page 19 of their pdf for the proof.
No Queens representatives are doing anything about this of course. Literally no one cares about Queens commuters." - anonymous
