After five weeks of using shuttle buses to get between Brooklyn and Queens, G train riders finally have the whole line back.
The G, which serves 125,000 riders daily, resumed making all stops Tuesday between Court Square in Long Island City and Nassau Avenue in Brooklyn.
The Metropolitan Transportation Authority had shut down three stations in July so crews could work around-the-clock fixing equipment damaged by Hurricane Sandy.
At a cost of $80 million, workers focused on fixing infrastructure that was patched together following the storm, as well as preparing the system ready for another "catastrophic flood."
Straphangers were happy to see their train back.
"I am ecstatic to have the train back, the buses were okay but nothing usually works faster than this," said one G train rider.
"The buses were good they did a good job covering it but with the train you get back to schedule and where you need to get to at a faster speed," noted another G train rider.
The Greenpoint tube, which carries the G between Queens and Brooklyn, was among the hardest hit of the nine underwater subway tunnels damaged by the storm.
