Holding lights ease overnight bus-subway transfers in Coney Island
BROOKLYN - The MTA is using a new holding light system to make overnight bus and subway connections easier for some Coney Island commuters.
Transportation officials say that a holding light will let B36 and B82 bus drivers know when subway trains are pulling into the Coney Island-Stillwell Avenue terminal.
The drivers will then know to wait for transferring customers from the Q subway line between 11 p.m. and 5 a.m.
