When does the MTA plan to install CBTC on the Lexington Avenue Subway line?

Not immediately. After Flushing and Queens Boulevard comes 6th avenue and 8th avenue.

They'll need to order new cars and heavily modify the newer existing cars for the Lexington CBTC.

Contracts for the Flushing Line (which is where installation is almost completed) and Queens Boulevard were already executed.

 

8th Avenue CBTC should be signed next year. 

 

For 6th Avenue, would this then enable CBTC operation from Queens all the way to Coney Island? (I was under the impression that Culver Line CBTC will come soon in the future).

 

Also, what about CBTC installation on the Broadway BMT Line? (Ridership has already increased due to the Q train extension opening on January 1st of this year to East 96th Street).
