Study: Subway delays up in 2012, early 2013

Posted: Updated:

NEW YORK (AP) - Superstorm Sandy caused nearly a 30% increase in subway delays during the first three months of this year.

A study by the Straphangers Campaign also found that subway delays were up by 10% in 2012 - 10 months before the storm.

The study was based on MTA electronic alerts of so-called controllable delays - problems related to signals, switches and track.

The study found the F train had the most delays, accounting for 8% of the 2,669 alerts issued.

The L train had the largest increase in delays - 60%.

The line with the fewest delays was the G.

The MTA says the study doesn't paint a full picture of the service issue but does serve to highlight the agency's efforts to keep customers informed.
