The Eagle takes a look at the latest MTA ridership stats, and notices that there has been a marked rise in G train users: “The Brooklyn sections of the G and J/M/Z lines both showed a jump in ridership from 2010 — both up by close to 6 percent. While these lines only account for one-fifth of all entries into the Brooklyn subways, the increase in ridership was substantial.” The reporter also talks to an MTA rep, who says that the increase in G train ridership has been particularly noteworthy. Still and all, it’s unclear whether this will have bearing on whether the train will continue to run on an extended route into the Slope, Windsor Terrace and Kensington that has been in effect for a couple of years during the Culver Viaduct rehab work. The Eagle notes: “Ridership data does show spikes in use along the temporarily extended section of the G line — the stops at Fourth Avenute/Ninth Street and Church Avenue avenue both saw an increase in ridership nearly four times the system average from the year before. Both are heavy bus transfer points.” Many politicians are making noise about the train’s extension being made permanent.
