Yesterday local politicians and the grassroots group Riders Alliance gathered to rally for better G train service at the Metropolitan Avenue G stop. They asked for a comprehensive study of the line as well as free transfers at the Broadway G to the Hewes or Lorimer stops of the J line and also from the Fulton G stop to the Atlantic Avenue station; now riders must exit the system and pay again for these transfers. DNA Info reported that prior to the rally, the Riders Alliance collected more than 200 signatures on a petition calling for more regular service, screens showing the train arrival times and free transfers. The alliance also sent a letter to the MTA with a list of suggested improvements. And here’s a letter that Senators Daniel Squadron and Martin Dilan sent to the MTA. As Senator Squadron said in a press release, “as the Brooklyn and Queens neighborhoods surrounding the G continue to grow, their lifeline must grow with them.”
