Signal Problems on the #7 Train Strike Again

November 15, 2016

The #34 bus arrived at the Main Street station at 6:55 AM as usual.  When I got down to the platform I noticed that the train on the platform was already crowded.  Finallythe train departed at 7:05 and crawled until we reached Willets Point as the conductor announced there are signal problems. I won’t shoot the messenger as I am grateful that announcements of delays are much more regular these days.  Finally the train reached Times Square at about 7:50 AM (45 minute ride instead of the usual 30 minute trip).  I missed my connection at Penn Station and arrived at work late.

When, when, when will they fix the signals on the MTA.
