NEW YORK CITY — Track debris, signal and some random person walking the tracks caused multiple subway delays on eight train lines Monday morning, according to the MTA.
Southbound 2 and 5 trains saw extensive delays spurred by the removal of track debris in a storage facility near Nereid Avenue in The Bronx, the MTA reported about 8 am
A train with mechanical problems had to be removed from the Beverly Road station in Brooklyn which caused 2 and 5 train delays in both directions about 20 minutes later, the MTA said.
An NYPD investigation at 145th Street in uptown Manhattan delayed southbound A trains, according to a 7:50 am announcement.
Signal problems at the Fifth Avenue and East 53rd Street station foiled Forest Hills-bound M and Queens-bound E trains, the MTA announced about 7:45 am
And Northbound F and Forest Hills-bound M trains were delayed by an unauthorized person on the tracks at Broadway-Lafayette Street, according to an 8:05 am alert.
The MTA also warned commuters they may face delays on the G and N lines because of staff shortages.
The transit authority said on its website, “We’re running as much service as we can with the train crews we have available.”
