L train service changes officially take effect
Saturday marked the first full day of service changes due to the L train project.
The Bedford station started to see larger crowds on the platform because the trains are running less frequently as repairs are underway.
The biggest impact will be on the Manhattan-bound trains from the Lorimer and Bedford stops.

From now until the summer of 2020, service will be been reduced to one train every 20 minutes between Bedford Avenue and Manhattan on nights and weekends.
Trains running in Brooklyn between Lorimer and the Rockaway parkway stop will run every 10 minutes.
Anyone trying to get into Manhattan is advised to take alternate trains or buses.
The MTA announced that while the project is taking place they're increasing service on the M, G and 7 trains and are also adding two special Williamsburg link bus routes to give commuters more options to get around.
