Another L Train Shuttle Weekend Thrills Thousands

L Train Shuttle One

The streets outside the Lorimer Street L Train stop yesterday were not a particularly happy spot. Nor for that matter was the station itself as hundreds of people got off trains that were terminating at the station so they could take shuttle buses along the L route to Broadway Junction (where they could catch the L again to Canarsie). There were buses and people lined up at Metropolitan and Union Avenues with MTA employees in orange vests using megaphones to direct people. It's all part of the L Train Weekend Screw Over MTA's aggressive service improvement plan, which continues through August 6. Fun. If you depend on the L Train to get around you know that service has already been suspended on three different weekends and two weekdays this year.

New York is among the few cities with 24/7 mass transit service. Without service suspensions and reroutes, improvements can't occur. Evening and weekend suspensions and reroutes--while they could sometimes be communicated better--beat the alternative of weekday chaos. If you're going to complain about the service, please stop kvetching about the efforts to improve it.

Whine, whine, whine.
You'll bitch if the system isn't maintained ... but when the system gets maintenance, you'll cry out when a bus instead of a train comes.
What crap.
Get a life.
