MTA Adds Extra Service During Peak Hours

July 28, 2008

In an effort to reduce some overcrowding on the subway, the Metropolitan Transportation Authority has added some extra service.

The changes, which went into effect today, include a greater frequency of trains, especially during peak travel hours.

NYC Transit says during the morning rush on the Number 4 train, trains will arrive at the station every 10 to 12 minutes, instead of every 15. During the evening rush on the 4, anywhere from one to three minutes has been shaved off the gap between trains.

The changes also affect evening service on the Number 1, the Number 6 and service on the 42nd Street S shuttle.

The total price tag for the increased service is about $8.9 million annually.

NYC transit says the expanded service is being funded by several internal savings initiatives.
