Today, NYC Council Transportation Committee Chair John Liu announced that he has organized an oversight hearing on G train service. Witnesses from the MTA will be asked to speak about ridership data, plans for the future, conditions, and other issues regarding G line service, and the public is also encouraged to testify about their own experiences.
Time/Date: Tuesday, April 8 at 1:00pm
Location: Council Chambers, City Hall
Oversight: What is the MTA doing to improve service on the G line?
Resolution #1262 Calling upon MTA to immediately improve service on the G line and to not implement any service cuts.
For all of you who've been endlessly frustrated by the roller coaster ride that is G line service levels, we're asking you to turn out in force on April 8th. Riders from Queens AND Brooklyn have been affected by the MTA's various management decisions and random service changes.
If you'd like to more directly help spread the word about the hearing, Save The G can certainly use your help. Please reach out to savetheg [at] yahoo [dot] com with your contact information, noting what sort of advocacy contributions you can make, and we'll be sure to thank you in person on April 8th.
This is a major opportunity for G riders to speak and be heard; let's make the most of it!
