Subway Delays Down By 10,000

At Tuesday’s monthly MTA transit committee meeting, NYC Transit was able to report that subway delays were down by 10,000 for the second month in a row. My good friend Greg Mocker of Pix11 has more:

There was some good news Tuesday at the monthly transit committee at MTA Headquarters.

Sally Librera, who heads the Department of Subways, says the transit agency met the goal to reduce delays by 10,000 for the second month in a row.

Officials credit the Subway Action Plan and targeting specific maintenance and improvement areas.

Riders say the system remains busy.

MTA NYC Transit President Andy Byford acknowledges there is more work to do.

“Every month we do move the ball down the field,” Byford said.

They make a detailed presentation at the regular committee meeting each month based on arrival statistics and reports.

The October 2018 weekday On-Time Performance is listed at of 70.3 percent and that is the the highest since August 2015.

While the NYC Subway has a ton of issues it still needs to address on a daily & long term basis, it would be wrong to not give kudos for showing improvement. Hopefully the agency can knock down the delays even further as we head into the holidays as a painless commute can be the best gift of all!
