And at the end of this month, the V will become history, replaced by the M as a 6 Avenue train.
Why? And what is the route of the M train? Being a regular visitor, I take the V to 51st/Lexington very often.

Read this page on the MTA's website (http://www.mta.info/nyct/service/RouteChanges/v_discontinued.htm - broken link) for more information regarding the transition to the M train.

I think eliminating the and making the http://www.nyctransitforums.com/forums/images/smilies/bullets/75px-NYCS-bull-trans-M1_svg.png (broken link) to an orange http://www.nyctransitforums.com/forums/images/smilies/bullets/75px-NYCS-bull-trans-M_svg.png (broken link) was one of the best moves MTA has made recently. People in the Middle Village area now have better access to midtown. For those still wanting lower Manhattan bound trains all is needed to is switch to the http://www.nyctransitforums.com/forums/images/smilies/bullets/75px-NYCS-bull-trans-J_svg.png (broken link) or http://www.nyctransitforums.com/forums/images/smilies/bullets/75px-NYCS-bull-trans-Z_svg.png (broken link).

As -.- indicated, the people who will be happiest about the M train serving 6 Avenue will be the ones living anywhere along the line from Metropolitan Avenue to Marcy Avenue, because now there will be direct access without having to make the transfer at Essex Street. (This will also have the effect of reducing crowds on the F line platform downstairs in the Delancey Street station).
