Signal problems cause delays, service changes, MTA says

A, B, C, D, E, F, G and M trains were impacted by the signal issues, the MTA said.

Signal problems at midtown subway stations caused delays and service changes on eight lines during Monday’s morning rush hour, the MTA said. 

B and M train service was suspended and D and F trains were rerouted for about an hour and half, the agency said. 

There were also delays on A, C, E and G trains, according to the MTA. 

The issues began at about 8 a.m. The agency first tweeted that there were signal issues at 47th-50th Streets-Rockefeller Center, but later said there were also problems at 42nd Street-Bryant Park.

“Crews repaired a circuit breaker and signal issue,” the MTA said in a statement. Regular service was restored at about 9:30 a.m., the agency said.

Monday’s signal problems follow several service disruptions in recent months. Debris on the tracks at a midtown station delayed trains on five lines for more than two hours during a morning commute last month.

A recent report found that subway delays have cost New Yorkers $307 million in wages each year.
