The MTA is adding trains to one of New York City's busiest subway lines.

Starting Sunday, the L line will have almost 100 additional trains every week.

That means each and every weekday, there will be 16 new round trips.

Improvements in the line's signal system are allowing trains to run closer together and, therefore, more frequently.
