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. 

The MTA says the goal is to improve transfers during a time when a missed bus could turn into a very long wait.
