MTA crews restore NYC subway service for commute after derailment

MTA crews restore NYC subway service for commute after derailment

Subway service was disrupted for hours and there were several minor injuries.

A Metropolitan Transport Authority (MTA) spokesman, said: "Customers should never leave a train on their own - it's risky and potentially deadly and it requires us to shut down entire lines and delay thousands of other customers because of the safety hazard it presents".

"Storing equipment in between tracks is a common practice employed by railroads across the country to accelerate rail repairs", the MTA said in a statement late Tuesday.

A commuter exits a closed off station after a subway train derailment, Tuesday, June 27, 2017, in the Harlem neighborhood of NY.

The number of subway delays has tripled in the past five years, to 70,000 per month. While he's out there testing driverless cars, people are yelling at him to fix the damn subways. She said the A train jerked and began shaking violently as it approached the station at 125th Street and St. Nicholas Avenue.

The derailment happened around 10 a.m. Tuesday, when two train cars jumped the tracks near the 125th Street station in Harlem.

Thirty-four people were injured.

As a state agency, Cuomo ultimately controls the MTA's funding.

Mr. Cuomo account, in particular, on the most recent return at the helm of the MTA, Joseph Lhota, who had successfully supervised the re-walk to subway after hurricane Sandy in 2012, to bring the system back in good working condition.

They were responsible, according to sources, for ensuring that a replacement rail, now considered a possible cause of the derailment, was secured in the railbed.

"It was travelling at a normal pace when suddenly, it was like a horse that rears, it has been cast in the top, bottom, all sides", said a traveler to NY 1. We are grateful to the first responders for their able assistance. Lhota said the emergency braking system on the train triggered, but it wasn't immediately clear why. "As I have told Joe, any support the MTA needs to get through this crisis, will be provided".

Delays were consequently reported throughout the subway system.

Although these disruptions have inconvenienced passengers, more unsafe scenarios have taken place as of late.
