I want to ask How do all of you who ride the (C), what do you like about the line, About the equipment that it uses and etc.

My response is that the (C) should get newer cars, I like the R32's don't get me wrong, I just think they are better off on a line that does not run 7 days a week, I would say the (B) and it needs to go full lengh.

But I want your input.

The (C)is now R32 heaven,
The (C) should Be 100% R160's after the R32's are gone
Not R44/46's

The "C" is utilitarian in nature. It's basically an "A" train on the local track. It does serve an important purpose and gets folks from point A to point B, but there's not much to it. It was more interesting when it ran to Bedford Park Blvd. I don't see enough ridership on the "C" to warrant 10 car train lengths; more frequent headways would be helpful on weekends when the "B" is not running. R44s mixed with 8 car R32s makes no sense as people never know where the cars wills will stop.

Just my two cents.

It is a feeder line, picks up from local stops and the majority transfer to the express.

The C stikes me as a rather odd line. It is a secondary line, and yet has a substantial route length. The fact that is has long headways and yet was never really that crowded at rush hours even though it has dedicated stops it serves (the local stops along Fulton)

The MTA will stop running the C for seemingly any work related service change and prefers to replace it with an awkward F to Euclid and the G to Coney pattern, or the A runs local.

It is intentionally given the oldest equipment in the system. (Even though I like the R32, after riding NTTs now most of the time, they are kinda oldish.)

All in all, a weird and maybe neglected egg.

I like the C train but, I think it can do better going somewhere beside Euclid Ave.

The C is there just so the A can have a faster trip to the Rockaways/Lefferts. Personally the C would have been great via Culver if that damned IND fort hamilton branch had been built. CURSE YOU WW II.

I like the (C). I liked when the (C) ran Bedford Park Boulevard to either Euclid Avenue or Beach 116th Street Rockaway Park and had the R27/R30 Redbirds.

The R1-R9s on the (CC) also were a favorite. In those days of the early 1970's, the (CC) ran rush hours only from Bedford Park Boulevard to the World Trade Center.

In the summer of 1988, I made my very first-ever trip to the Rockaways on an R27-R30 Redbird (C).

I hate the C. Especially on weekends when it wants to exist.

I think that the C train have a lot of potential as a Culver local to Ave X. This will allow the F train to be express. Another option is to allow the C train to terminate at Lefferts Blvd instead of Euclid Ave. End the A Train going to Lefferts Blvd.

1 wont happen because people want a F more imprtant than the C and 2 same Situation Lefferts riders want express not a local.

I feel pretty good about the C, thanks. It runs nostalgic equipment, no need to wait for the holidays on this line. Plus, there are often seats available whilst everyone else crowds on the A and E.

The (C) is okay just needs to be more Frequent. (C) is like Robin(sidekick) & the (A) is like Batman(Leader-Superhero).

from the "MTA Unveils Five-Year Plan"...... NYC Transit is adding resources to extend the useful life of its R-32 subway car fleet until replacements are delivered in 2017.

I'm loving the R46's on the C line, even if it's only temporary.

Only problem for me is I want the last car and so I'm standing for an 8 car train of 60 footers and an R46 comes in. Mess me up >G<

I'm a NY'er I stand where the doors will open and at the point of the train where I will get off near the stairs.
If a full 600ft R46 comes in and I'm standing where the normal C's last car is I won't be near the door and I won't be near the stairs at the station I get off.
That's what's bad!

Extend the C to Richmond Hill-Lefferts Blvd., send the A to serve Far Rockaway, and Rockaway Park, put R-160's on both lines, and watch the 8th Avenue-Fulton corridor live up to it's full potential.
