MTA Offering Free Transfer For G Train This Summer

NEW YORK (AP) -

For five weeks this summer subway riders will be able to get a free, above-ground transfer between stations in Williamsburg.

Riders will be able to switch from G trains at the Broadway station to J or M trains at the Lorimer Street station by walking a few blocks between the stations. The free transfer is being offered while the G train’s Greenpoint Tube is repaired, beginning July 26. The tube suffered damage during Superstorm Sandy.
