Hooray! Another amenity has returned for Southern Brooklyn commuters: Q and B subway service.

Beginning just before rush hour this morning, the beleaguered Q line is now extended as far south as Brighton Beach station. The B line, for the first time since Hurricane Sandy, is now operating from Kings Highway, heading north.

Specifically, Q trains operate between the Brighton Beach Station and the Astoria-Ditmars Boulevard Station in both directions.

B trains operate between Bedford Park Boulevard Station and Kings Highway Station in both directions.

Did you ride these trains this morning? How was your commute?

  1. This is big news. My love affair with the BM 3 was intense but now over. I am back to riding the rails on the Q. By the way, I think Joe Lhota deserves to be the next Mayor. He really made the right moves by shutting the subways and moving the rolling stock out of the yards pre-Sany. The Coney Island Yards were flooded and I bet the cars would have been destroyed if he had not moved them.

  2. I took the B train this morning from Kings Highway. The platform was PACKED!!! But the B came after about 10 minutes of me waiting, and I got a seat (yay!) and it got me to midtown without a hitch. I was a happy camper.

  3. B and Q trains are not running as frequently as they usually do, so allow 5-10 extra minutes of travel. Overall, though, the commute was okay.
