Increased L Train service begins Sunday

Straphangers frustrated by crowded and infrequent trains on the L line will soon get some relief, thanks to an increase in service that will begin this Sunday.

The new service increase will add seven additional round trip trains on Sundays, 16 additional peak and off-peak round trip trains on weekdays, and 11 additional round trip trains on Saturdays, State Sen. Daniel Squadron announced.

Squadron said he pushed for the increase in service because of a huge spike in ridership over the past 14 years. An article in am New York today reported that although ridership on the L has nearly doubled since 1998, train service has only increased by 50 percent.
