That's what peak service is presently supposed to be. The E is already pretty timely compared to the bulk of NYCT's services so logically the major advantage of adding CBTC would seem to be squeezing a few more trains per hour out of it.

The L went from 15 to about 20 TPH after CBTC was done and it's got similar physical terminal constraints AFAIK. The L is supposed to reach 22 TPH after more traction power is added to the line.
