Commuters relieved as snow misses city

Commuters relieved as snow misses city

Snow did not blanket the city Monday morning, keeping the commute smooth except for a few bumps.

 

Trains did not experience any weather-related delays, but mechanical problems slowed lines in Queens during the early part of the morning commute. Switch problems at the 36th Street station in Queens forced E and F trains to run local from Jackson Heights-Roosevelt Avenue to as far as 47th-50th Street/Rockefeller Center Manhattan until about 7:30 a.m..

 

"It kept stopping between stations," said Mariana Nika, 22, a Kew Gardens E rider who was running 15 minutes late to her work in Midtown.

I was at Flushing waiting for an LIRR train to NYP and look out east and saw that storm just sit out there and knew nothing was going to happen.

I'm glad it didn't happen. The Bx19 is horrendous when it snows.

 

Yep. Better off taking any parallel 40ft bus route, or the train when it snows. The articulated lines go KABOOM!, when it snows.
