Overview

Opened: 4/9/1936

Transfer here to: |BMT Franklin Shuttle

Franklin Avenue. Two side platforms, four tracks. Same tile pattern as Lafayette Ave. This station has fare control at the south end, at platform level. A north exit to Classon Avenue is long closed. The only evidence of this exit are some blacked out "to Classon Avenue" tiles where the paint is fading allowing the underlying text to show through. This station was renovated in conjunction with the BMT Franklin Shuttle rebuild, with full elevator access to the platforms and in-system transfer to the Shuttle. Prior to the free in-system transfer, and prior to the Metrocard, a paper bus-style transfer was handed out at the token booth (the only place in the subway where this was still being done). After the introduction of the Metrocard, a paper Metrocard transfer was issued from a machine that resembles a bus farebox near the token booth. The transfer was good for twenty minutes only and could only be used to enter the shuttle station.
