MTA Breaks Ridership Record Second Month In A Row, Running High On Delays

December 16, 2014 | Prachi Gupta

New York’s subways continue to break ridership records, reports Pix 11. The MTA — which is still in massive debt, by the way — shattered records in September when more than 6 million people rode the subway on a single day. In October, ridership exceeded 6 million on seven separate days. The news was announced at MTA’s December Transit Committee meeting.

Staff also discussed the delays, attributed to “more work and inspections.” CBS reports that “a quarter of all trains are running behind schedule” by at least five minutes, between last October and this October, a figure that is up from 19 percent the previous year.
