6:40 am
that there are trains going to different destinations is very important that our customer pay attention to the destinations on the side of the train to make sure they wind up in the light rite location. >> that is what you need to look for when you are on the platform, the side of train and the front where the sign are with the end points, correct? >> exactly. so, you know, also pay attention to the display signs on the platforms. so that way you know exactly how long of a wait you have for the train that is coming and where it is heading. that way you don't wind up with any surprises. you should take advantage of your mobile device an our trip planner on online. there are many options to time your commute properly. we are eliminating some blue line trains so in order to make sure get on the right train or that you time your arrival appropriately, you should take a look at your trip planners. take a look at your mobile device and find out when the blue line trains are going to be at your station owe you can find your trip that way. if you happen to miss one of the trains you were hoping to take, the other options are
6:41 am
also to perhaps instead of waiting for the next blue line train, hop on a yellow line train, go across the yellow line bridge and transfer. do whatever you need to do to make your commute the most efficient and get to where you need to go as quickly as you k another thing we are doing is for any of the riders who would typically take a blue line train, if they want to get to the roslyn station and don't want to wait the extra six minutes, we have extent the 9e and 10e bus lines as well. we are trying to make sure that everyone gets to where they're going with asling confusion as possible. >> great information. the added times on the blue line, they had to most trains over. hopefully, everybody will get to where they need to go. this is during rush hour only. the 6:0:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. and 3:30:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. back to you guys. >> lauren demarco making sense
