Petition to Provide Better Alternatives for F/G Station Closures
As EVERYONE knows by now, north-bound F/G-train platforms at the 15th St. and Ft. Hamilton Parkway stations will be closed for the next 5 months (with south-bound closures to follow afterward).
No one denies that major track work on the F local tracks is necessary but F/G train users and losers believe that the MTA should provide service alternatives.
Many want the MTA to extend B68 bus (which runs along Prospect Park Southwest and Coney Island Avenue) past its usual terminus at Bartel Pritchard Square (at the 15th St/PPSW Station), to 9th St and 8th Ave, where riders could pick up the F train. Brad Lander has set up a petition and urges straphangers to demonstrate their support.
Already 1000 F/G subway riders have signed a petition for better transit alternatives.
