What Up, G?

KensingtonBrooklyn spots a tidbit in the MTA's latest release:

Extending the G train to Church Avenue.

We noted a few weeks ago the maddening route of the G train one Sunday; the train rode all the way out past Church Ave, turned around, and sat with doors closed for several minutes, and then left. All they had to do was open the doors, and some people could have gotten to their destinations along the G route. To the extent that this takes some riders who would normally take the F to Jay Street to switch for the A off of the F, it will benefit riders at Carroll and Bergen as well.

Incremental improvements, folks. This is a plus but we need to keep pushing. Bring back the F Express!
