The good news for riders is that the sardinelike conditions may soon be coming to an end: subway officials have pledged to run more L trains on the weekends, starting in the summer of 2012, according to State Senator Daniel L. Squadron, a Democrat representing parts of Brooklyn and Manhattan whose office requested the study.
An extra train will also be added between 9 a.m. and 9:30 a.m. on weekdays, to ease the load on Manhattan-bound trains that are currently packed to capacity. That extra trip is scheduled to begin in December, the report said.
