|The (L) along with IRT's (1) & (7) Lines, are tied for 1st place|
|The 2016 Straphangers Report Card. All data from Gene Russianoff and Jaqi Cohen.|
The (5) is one of the most useful, most popular, most god-blessed subway lines. It was rated the worst last year along with the (B), who was rated the worst last year, In most spots the (5) helps out in segments where the (2) and (4) could be out due to service changes. The (5) travels between Dyre Avenue, The Bronx and Flatbush Avenue, Brooklyn, during weekdays and evenings. It also serves Wakefield (The Bronx), Utica and/or New Lots Avenues (Brooklyn) ,and runs Bronx thru Express during peak rush hour. Weekends, trains terminate at Bowling Green, and late night trains operate between Dyre Avenue and East 180th Street, only. It doesn't deserve the constant hate its receiving because the cars are clean, trains arrive on time, and has clear audible announcements. The only thing its needs to improve on is its congestion rate. The (A) is the longest subway line, traveling between Inwood, Manhattan and Ozone Park/The Rockaways in Queens. Its highly reliable and also does not deserve all the hate it gets. It's not the worst line. The only things that needs improvement are the breakdowns, announcements, and service regularity.
