From the mailbag:

BBB11 writes, “On weekends and holidays the B train does not operate. Only the Q. Those of us who need the former have to switch at Atlantic Avenue. This is quite inconvenient, and for those less than able-bodied, traveling with children, luggage, etc. can be quite taxing. Why can’t the MTA send the D train into DeKalb Avenue after it has left the Pacific/Atlantic platform rather than send it doirectly oer the bridge? This would not involve adding any extra trains and would be very beneficial to riders. It used to be that on weekends, trains that normally went directly to Pacific would stop first at Dekalb.”
