No Ode To The A Train

No Ode To The A Train

No Ode To The A Train

Please, please, please can we have a "real" Express A train to the city to and from 116th Street.

I love living in Rockaway but the one hour plus trip on hard seats (if you’re lucky to get a seat for the first 30 minutes of the journey going home at night) is starting to drive me nuts.

Not to mention that it takes you a minimum of 1½ hours if you are traveling off peak and have to wait for the shuttle.

How ironic when we can see a view of Manhattan from Rockaway yet it takes longer to get there than say, someone traveling from Chappaqua in Westchester on the Metro North (40 mins to Grand Central).

Who do we have to talk to in order to bring about change the current service? I’d appreciate some answers.
