For those stuck with the 2, C, and A trains on their morning commute, there's no doubt you've endured some seriously unfavorable conditions: irregular service, frequent mechanical breakdowns (which can lead to lengthy delays), and little room to sit, move, or breathe during its busiest hours. The 2 train, which travels from Wakefield to Flatbush, failed (for the second year in a row), being named the worst line in New York City, period, thanks to its failure to arrive on time and lack of seats, almost always. If you're riding the 2, C, or A, you're almost guaranteed massive delays and sticky, overcrowded rush hour trips.
The report also examined the subway's performance overall, determining that "crew breakdown rates [have] worsened," while cleanliness and the accuracy and clarity of announcements marginally improved, thankfully. The subway may not be perfect, but hey, at least it's moving in the right direction. Unless you're on the 2 train — then you're probably not moving at all. (NY Daily News)
