Most Subways Are Back, But Your Commute Probably Still Sucked

11.05.12 Andy Cush

As of this writing, every subway line save the G is back up and running in some fashion–yes, the L is running between Broadway Junction and Canarsie–but with long lines, crowded trains, and delayed bus service have the morning commute is far from back to normal. And New Jerseyites and Long Islanders may have it even worse than New York’s outer borough denizens, with PATH service still completely down and LIRR trains crowded above capacity.

However, New Yorkers can rest assured that Mayor Bloomberg is feeling our pain, as the Post reports that in a show of solidarity, the Upper East Side resident took the subway to work like a normal human being today–even if he was shuttled 20 blocks in an SUV before getting on the train, and was flanked by six security guards who wouldn’t allow reporters and other straphangers to speak to him.

If you’re still at home wondering whether you’ll be able to make it into work today, helpful guides can be found here and at the MTA’s website.
