The R Train that Never Comes

...Because it doesn't run late nights. The newly formed, or more accurately, joined, Jay Street-Metro Tech station now joins the A,C, and F trains to the R train in downtown Brooklyn. This is another step closer to uniting the subway system from an old visage of three competing transit companies. A similar connection has being made in Long Island City connecting the E,M,G trains at Court Square to the 7 train at the elevated 45 Road- Court Square station two blocks away. Now if only something similar would be done (or atleast a metrocard transfer) with the Broadway-G and the nearby elevated Lorimer-J,M station in Williamsburg (ahem MTA), I and many other Brooklyn commuters would be quite happy.
