On Friday, December 20, NYC Transit operated a ceremonial first trip on the 7 Line extension. The extension supports development of the Far West Side, but does not include a 10th Avenue/ 41st Street station due to its removal as a cost saving measure. The NYCTRC has advocated for this station from the beginning; see the NYCTRC's statement.
