Sick Passengers and Train Delays

We all know how the trains are on a Monday morning.

Regardless of where you’re going, there always seems to a sea of people waiting on the tracks for the next already-filled train. As if that wasn’t bad enough, we all know the pain we feel when we hear that there is a sick passenger and there were are, left to stand and wait, leaning on the next person.

Monday saw the MTA hit big when it comes to sick passengers and train delays, with the A, L and 2 trains across the city being affected by sick passengers. “Monday morning blues were evident throughout the subway system yesterday as reports of sick customers snarled train service on five lines, delaying a total of 34 trains and thousands of harried customers,” said MTA NYC Transit in a Facebook post.

Below is a short video, used by the MTA, explaining how a delay involving a sick passenger results in commuting disasters for New Yorkers.
