Riders Alliance on Monday’s Disastrous Morning Commute

Yesterday morning, the MTA web site listed the following problems:

Delays on the 2, 3, 5, 7, B, D, E, F, J, and M trains.
Signal problems at Wall Street (2/3), Eastchester-Dyre Av (5), Mets-Willets Point (7), and West 4 St—Washington Square (A/B/C/D/E/F/M). And a broken train at Jamaica Yard.
Some F trains were running on the A track. Some F trains were running on the G track. Some 2 trains were running on the 5 track. Some M trains terminated at Chambers.

The video of the trapped F train riders, above, speaks for itself.

John Raskin, Executive Director of the Riders Alliance, released the following statement:
“This week we couldn’t even make it through Monday morning without the subways breaking down. Governor Cuomo has said he’s responsible for fixing the subway, but he hasn’t said how, or when, or with what funding. Subway riders leave for work in the morning not knowing if or when they will arrive. Meanwhile, the Governor has yet to release a plan to fix our dysfunctional commutes. What is Governor Cuomo’s plan to fix the subways, and when will he let riders in on it?”
