MTA Improves Subway Experience by Upgrading and Deep-Cleaning 20 D and F Line Stations

Residents of Boro Park can look out for what may be improved experiences on the subway because the MTA has upgraded and deep-cleaned the F and D lines, which connect Boro Park with the rest of New York City.

Five months after NYC Transit announced its “Faster, Cleaner, Safer” plan to provide better customer service and nicer environments on the rails, the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) has already provided substantial upgrades to 11 more stations, announced MTA.

Last year, the MTA improved nine stations on the D line last, and now the MTA is busy finishing the upgrades to the West 8th Street/NY Aquarium station, which is on the F line, reported.

To minimize disruptions to commuters, MTA workers made concrete repairs, launched into deep cleanings, and replaced missing tiles along station walls during weekends.

The 11 stations that received the latest renovations stand in locations that are scattered citywide, including: Vernon Blvd. and Court Square on the 7 line; 8 Av.; DeKalb Ave. and Morgan Ave. on the L line; Delancey/Essex, Canal St. and 104 St on the J; 21 St. on the G; Avenue N on the F; and Canal Street on the R/W.

The MTA’s improvements and general upgrades to now 20 stations have resulted from a program called, “Station Re-NEW-vation Program,” which provided upgrades to nine stations on the D line last year.

By the end of 2023, the MTA’s plans to re-vamp another 30 subway stops, which is part of the agency’s plan to increase customer satisfaction by 10% by June 2024.

“Customers are returning to stations that feel new,” said NYC Transit President Richard Davey, who hoped the stations’ improvements “inspire some neighborhood pride and make riders’ commute more enjoyable.
