Second Avenue Subway Relieves Crowding on Neighboring Lines

So far, the new subway line on the Upper East Side of Manhattan appears to be helping — the number of riders on the closest line, the Lexington Avenue line, has fallen, though plenty of people still jockey to squeeze onto trains.

The long-delayed Second Avenue line opened to great fanfare on Jan. 1. In the first few weeks of the year, ridership at its four stations has grown steadily, from about 83,000 on the first day to more than 150,000 last Wednesday — short of the 200,000 daily riders that officials predicted, but an encouraging sign that New Yorkers are using the line.

At stops on the Lexington Avenue line between Grand Central Terminal and 110th Street, ridership fell by about 11 percent, or by nearly 88,000 trips, on an average weekday in January, according to an analysis by The New York Times of data from the Metropolitan Transportation Authority.

Ridership fell at every stop, but the greatest drop was at the 86th Street stop, which had about 28,000 fewer trips, or about 24 percent fewer riders, on an average weekday this month, compared with January 2016.

Some subway riders on the Nos. 4, 5 and 6 trains that run along Lexington Avenue have noticed a difference. As Charlie Allen waited for an express train at the 86th Street stop on a recent morning, he said the crowds appeared to have improved slightly.

“It’s still crowded,” said Mr. Allen, 31, a lawyer who lives in East Harlem. “I haven’t had to not get on trains as often, but they’re still very crowded when I do get on them.”

Andrew Cuomo Declares a State of Emergency in MTA Serviced Counties

the "Summer of Hell" is upon us. Cuomo isn't playing around.

PDF: Executive Order No. 168

Cuomo declares a ‘state of emergency’ for NYC subway

Governor Andrew Cuomo announced that he has declared a state of emergency for the MTA, and that the state plans to allocate an additional $1 billion in funding to the agency’s current capital plan.

“We are now beginning to see what happens when mass transit systems break down,” Cuomo stated. By declaring a state of emergency, the state can “suspend procurement rules for the MTA, allowing the MTA to speed up repairs and the purchase of material and equipment to replace outdated infrastructure,”


Cuomo also announced that the MTA will work with ConEd on an “immediate investigation of their equipment, transmission and interlocks throughout the entire system.” That investigation, to be completed within 90 days, will then lead to repairs and better communication when problems arise, in theory, by the end of the year.

Yeesh. Cuomo is such a prick. The extra money is nice but his pettiness and lack of leadership have done irreparable damage to the MTA and NYC. Hope he's sufficiently humiliated by the mess he's helped create.
