Riders on the No. 7 train faced rush-hour delays this morning that lasted about 90 minutes–following FDNY activity at the 5th Avenue station.

The MTA stopped train service between Times Square and Hunters Point Avenue (in both directions), and riders were advised to take the N,R, Q, F and E lines.

Many No. 7 trains were just sitting in stations as commuters tried to squeeze into trains. The MTA also told many commuters to take the bus.

7 train not moving again! Monday morning rush hour after a weekend of no service. We are stuck at a station due to “an earlier incident.”

Hello

Yes. Like it’s so simple for people to control their hours of work.
If we’re paying high taxes and mta fares then we expect great service. It’s not the other way around.

i’ve seen you post so much rude and racist stuff on here, i thought you were the worst person ever. but this is so ridiculous, i’ve concluded you must just be a troll. you’re probably 15 years old or something, otherwise you’d know M-F 9-5 is just how it is. many cities have worse congestion btw, look at DC or LA.

SHOCKING.

The MTA IS THE WORST. They will continue to be the worst because the commuters don’t do anything about.

It took me an hour and half to go from 46th St. to QB plaza this morning. And I thought I was going to get to work early.

My husband said he had to walk off the train and out of a tunnel where a train was stuck. Yesterday, it ran almost all day with delays because of the ubiquitous “signal problems.”

And we have another weekend of total closure to look forward to between Times Square and Jackson Heights, with shuttle buses provided.

Its about time to start a rally! The MTA is runned by Cuomo’s thungs who never use the train!

The MTA is essentially a tax. You’re forced to pay and if not you’re looking down the barrel of a gun and getting screwed by the long dick of the law.

Hello

It’s wishful thinking when you say people should rally. Too many sheeple afraid to take action.
