  7. 45 minute wait for the SIM2 between the last two buses on weekdays? So much for following its own guidelines. Also, wasn't the SIM4C suppose to go to Hugenot SIR station? The draft schedule only has it going to Woodrow & Vineland.

    Uh-Oh. Look what's creeping up again: Delays Posted: 12/11/2018 11:13PM Northbound and trains are delayed because of switch problems at Atlantic Av-Barclays Ctr.

There are huge gaps on the QBL right now, with the next local not set to arrive at some stations over 30 minutes from now. UPDATE 2: WTF is up with the 4th Avenue Line today??? Delays Posted: 12/11/2018 11:38PM Manhattan-bound , and trains are running with delays because of an unauthorized person on the tracks at Prospect Av. Judging from the delays, the last to arrive at Forest Hills might be past 1 AM.
