GRAVESEND - A faster ride into Manhattan could be in store for South Brooklyn soon, as the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) says it's considering an express F train.

At a recent City Council hearing, the MTA said it was considering an express line on the route. Currently, there's 20 stops between Manhattan and Coney Island, but an express train would make less than half of the stops.

The MTA did not say when a decision will be made or when a plan would be implemented.
