Transfer to Wycoff Avenue on the M

Myrtle Avenue (Wycoff Avenue) on the L train has a single island platform for the two track line, with Ms in the trim along the top of the platform walls. There are four staircases strategically placed towards the middle of the platform up to the decently sized underground mezzanine for the Canarise Line. This mezzanine as a second, underground exit towards its eastern end that's unstaffed with a couple of conventional street stairs, and it's own L platform elevator, as well as the main elevator, and stairs (about 10 feet across from the L train's platform elevator) up to the main full time exit in the building at street level. This is also where the two escalators (one for each direction) can be found leading directly up to the top level of the station house and the passageway that leads to another elevator and stairs complex up to the M platform.

All of the column signs now say Myrtle-Wycoff Avs there, although that is really an intersection of two streets.
