BROOKLYN - Six months after a review of the G train, the MTA has offered up some recommendations to make the commute for Brooklyn residents a bit easier.

The recommendations include increasing G line service by 25 percent during the afternoon and evening rush. The MTA also wants to put markers along the platform so that commuters will know where the four-car train is going to stop.

The MTA hopes to install PA systems for the 12 G train stations that do not have them.

State Sen. Daniel Squadron says he will be working closely with the MTA to try to make the recommendations a reality.

Riders have criticized the train in the past due to overcrowding. An estimated 125,000 commuters ride the G line each day.
