Unplanned Subway Service Changes

Recommended Posts

If the person is sick and on the platform the train will continue it’s trip normally. If the person was on the train and became ill it’s a completely different story. If the person is traveling with someone who can be responsible for the person that sick rider can be removed from the train to the platform. That train will be delayed until the removal is done. If the person is traveling alone and no responsible person or volunteer medical professionals will take over it’s a different story. Either the train is discharged and the C/R remains with the person or EMS arrives and they take over. That equates to a longer delay. What you are describing I’ve never personally encountered. What I have seen and heard about are lowlife passengers who don’t report an obviously sick person because they don’t want to be delayed. I remember when they started posting signs saying if a person felt ill to don’t board the train at all. That’s my experience though. Carry on.

So the policy has the effect of creating a perverse incentive to sweep the sick passenger under the rug.

There is no (N) shuttle train service in both directions because of signal problems between Middle Village-Metropolitan Av and Myrtle-Wyckoff Avs. 
 

Because it ain't Wednesday without some type of service change right?

Although it's done, there was a loss of Power at Whitehall Street. It was originally mentioned that it was a train with mechanical problems which caused the incident. 

(W) trains terminated at Prince.

(R) trains ran on the (Q) in both directions from Canal to DeKalb.

There is no (4) and (5) train service between Atlantic Av-Barclay Ctr and Brooklyn Bridge-City Hall in both directions.

(5) trains are running along the (2) line between Nevins St and 149 St-Grand Concourse in both directions.

These service changes are because of FDNY activity at Borough Hall.

Expect delays in (2) , (3), (4) and (5) train service.

My work is 150 feet away from the Wall St 4 & 5 station and 900 get away from the Fulton St 4 & 5 station. I used to wake the A train from Far Rockaway - Mott Av to Fulton St and how the 4 of 5 train 1 stop to Wall St. Just yesterday, I realized that it's quicker to just walk to Fulton St going back home because of the underpass and the northbound station being around 100 feet further that the southbound station. It's interesting timing that no trains are running at either Wall St or Fulton St. All I did was walk the whole northbound platform of the 4 & 5 Fulton St train to the A & C passageway right to the A train.

Northbound (3) trains are stopping along the (1) line from 96 St and end 137 St-City College because of switch problems at Harlem-148 St.

 

From the looks of waiting time on platforms and subway time, it looks like (3) service has been temporarily suspended.

Some southbound (5) trains are stopping along the (2) line from 149 St-Grand Concourse to South Ferry because of FDNY activity at 125 St.

For service between 125 St and 86 St customers can use the (6) train.

Monday morning = delays on (1) train.

Especially the Monday after the Super Bowl (as this had a sick passenger), which usually has the highest absenteeism rate of any day the entire year.

Did any trains actually get rerouted to 137th?

Nope. From the looks of it, (3) trains were held at stations, while the (2) ran local south of Times Square. First time I've ever seen a 50 minute wait for a train displayed on the countdown clocks.

The (2) has been running local south of 42nd Street all day on weekends since June and that will last until I think July or so.

Why don't they just send both the (2) and the (3) down to South Ferry on weekends until the construction is finished?

The (2) already goes down to South Ferry, and serves most (3) stops except 145 Street and 148 Street. Additionally, you cannot have the (1) , (2) , and (3) turn at South Ferry simultaneously without causing unecessary delays.

Why could they not send the (2) to Brooklyn via South Ferry (go via loop to Bowling Green then change ends)?

You guys are going to have to take me at my word because My phones broken, so I couldn't get a pic, but there was a (M) via 63rd this morning at about 8:15. Don't know if this has been mentioned.

That works in the middle of the night when such a service only interacts with the (4). On the weekends, with increased frequencies across the board and the (5) trains running, that would be a merging nightmare, even under optimal conditions.
