A rally for improvements to the G train will focus on the need for more frequent service, better communication by the MTA with riders--especially when there are service changes or disruptions--and free out-of-system transfers from the Broadway G stop to Hewes or Lorimer and from  the Fulton G stop to Atlantic/Barclays.

Gather this Sunday, January 27th, at 1:00 p.m., at the corner of Metropolitan Avenue and Union Avenue, at the Metropolitan/Lorimer stop on the G.
