Bedbugs found on the N train, MTA confirms
Let the panic set in if you've ridden the N train lately: Bedbugs were found on at least three trains of the N line this week, the MTA confirmed.
The MTA will now be checking out where crews congregate in the Coney Island rail yard, the last southbound stop for the N train, according to spokesman Kevin Ortiz. Bedbugs were found on the seat cushions in the train cabs that motormen use, sources told the Daily News.
“We are doing spot checks in crew areas down at Coney Island," Ortiz said.
Two N trains were taken out of service Sunday and then fumigated after bedbugs were found on some of the cars. A third train was removed for fumigation on Tuesday.
The MTA said all cars of the three trains were fumigated. Bedbugs are commonly found in beds, sofas and cushions.
