An MTA spokeswoman confirmed Tuesday that there would be no shuttle bus service along the suspended G line and closed stations on the L line in Brooklyn.
"We can't transport all of the people that take subways on a shuttle bus," she said. "There are not enough buses in the universe to do that."
Councilwoman Letitia James, D-Fort Greene, and District Leader Lincoln Restler had called for the transit agency to provide the service.
As of 12:30 p.m. Tuesday, 3,000 people had signed a petition calling on MTA to set up shuttle buses for as long as the two lines remained dark.
There was one piece of good news for G train riders, however.
MTA officials said they would run "test trains" on the line today — an important first step towards restoring service.
