Express F train service may be coming back to Brooklyn.

An MTA official mentioned that the agency is weighing the return of express F train service once work on the Culver Viaduct in Gowanus finishes later this year, according to published reports.

Aaron Stern, director of New York City Transit's Office of Management and Budget, reportedly mentioned the plan at a City Council budget hearing, saying that if the service came back it may impact the number of trains that hit other stations along the line.

"We would be taking the same ridership level and redistributing it to both services," Stern said at the hearing, according to the New York Post.

The line hasn't had express service 1987.

The MTA didn't respond to a request for comment Tuesday.
