Here's some good news for strap-hangers who take the G train.

Starting Monday, there will be a 25 percent increase in service during the afternoon and evening rush.

Morning trains will also be more evenly spaced out to cut down on crowding.

The Metropolitan Transportation Authority agreed to the service changes after completing a full line review requested by politicians and the group "Riders Alliance."

The agency is also making sure the shorter 4-car trains stop at the same place in the station every time—getting rid of what many riders call "the G Train sprint."

They're also adding P.A. systems to the 12 stations on the line currently without them.
