In July of 2009, the G train was extended by five stations from Carrol Gardens into Park Slope, Windsor Terrace, and Kensington to allow for track work on the elevated section of the F and G lines. The MTA had indicated the extension would be permanent, but now they are seriously considering discontinuing G train service to these five stations.
The G links Brooklyn neighborhoods that otherwise are not readily accessible to one another by bus or subway. The MTA has severely cut the G train's route in Queens. The extension into Park Slope, Windsor Terrace and Kensington was one boost in service after years of cuts and fare hikes. The G train is our Brooklyn Local. We need to preserve the G train extension!
