BROOKLYN - The MTA has announced great news for Brooklyn commuters who rely on the L and M trains. 

The transit agency plans to increase both weekday and weekend services this fall, meaning more trains to help speed up commutes.  

Transportation officials say that Saturday L service will be increased by 33 roundtrips, while Sundays will see an extra 23 roundtrips. The weekday evening L service will also be upped by an additional three. 

Meanwhile, weekday M service will be increased by one northbound trip in the morning and one southbound trip in the late afternoon. 

The changes are in addition to increased roundtrips already planned on the L line this June, as well as a weekend extension of the M line from Myrtle Avenue to Delancy and Essex streets. 

The MTA is making the adjustments due to increased ridership. It will cost about $1.7 million a year.
