The Subway Last Night Was Horrible Everywhere


It’s not just you: During last night’s commute, the subway was amazingly, epically terrible. Traveling during rush hour is never exactly a dream, but, starting at 6 pm last night, a variety of complications hit the MTA system at the same time, resulting in hour-long delays on basically every subway line. It was. the. worst.

The A, C, D, E, F, and R were all affected by a manhole catching fire near the West 4th station, damaging signal cables on those lines and causing a massive commuter pile-up. But even if you somehow managed to avoid all of those trains, you still ran into problems. At the same time, a power outage caused malfunctions on the 1, 2, 3, 4, 5,6, and 7 lines, and the Times Square shuttle had the doors open to the tracks instead of the platform. Ah, the perfect storm of absolute suckdom. I guess that’s one for the G train riders.

Understandably, people were pissed:



  1. As you mentioned, the G train ran fine last night.
    Well, at least “fine” for the G train
    (i.e.we didn’t need to ge out and push).
    One catch though:
    the poor little G train. huff and puff,
    is the only non-shuttle subway line
    that doesn’t run in or out of Manhattan.
    Or need to!
    Hey who needs you Manhattan,
    when we’ve got Brooklyn!
