Riders rejoice at W train’s return


Starting today, you can ride the W like it’s 2010.

The local train, which runs from Astoria’ Ditmars Boulevard to Whitehall Street in Lower Manhattan, began its operations today.

It was discontinued in 2010 as part of the MTA’s budget cuts.

The N will now run express in Manhattan, and the Q won’t run in Queens altogether. It will be rerouted instead to the new Second Avenue subway line, coming shortly.

Riders took to social media to show their happiness with the W’s triumphant return to the MTA family.


Taking the W even reminded some riders about what it was like to ride the train before it was discontinued.

Others were confused by the emergence of the W train.

Either way, the W is back and it’s here to stay. What are your thoughts about the W’s return?
