I knew today was gonna be a little off when I wokeup at 4:19am drenched in sweat bc my clearly my bedroom is on the ☀️ now heading to work, the complete 1 train line breaks down and we have to transfer... but the gotcha gotcha is we have to wait for the elevator to take us up to the platform, hence the crowd. Happy Friday From that damn MTA!!!! #HOJM #HouseofJohnMack #MTA #bullshit #alwaystrainissues #NYC
In what appears to be just another morning in the subway, the MTA is reporting delays on the F, N, Q, R and W trains thanks to "signal problems" at Lexington Avenue-59th Street.
@MTA you up?

There is currently no N or W service between 57th Street-7th Avenue and Astoria-Ditmars Boulevard in both directions, to the dismay of Queens commuters.
Train suspended & this is the current situation. Thanks a lot @MTA https://t.co/9mfsxihbhA

Some N trains are terminating at 42nd Street or 57th Street-7th Avenue, and W trains are running along the Q line between 57th Street-7th Avenue and 96th Street in both directions. Southbound R trains are running on the F line from Jackson Heats-Roosevelt Avenue to Lexington Ave-63rd Street, and then via the Q line to 57th Street-7th Avenue. Check back here for updates.
Oh @MTA, I just don't know what to say anymore. The trains from Astoria have gotten worse and worse and the fares get higher and higher.

There are also service changes on the 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5 trains, according to the MTA, due to fallen debris at Hoyt Street.

Earlier this week, the MTA announced a six-point plan to address the key causes of subway delays.
