Authorities say about 140 passengers on a train that travels to and from John F. Kennedy International Airport were stranded for hours following a computer malfunction.
The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey says the problems on the AirTrain started Saturday at 5:33 p.m. Service was restored at 10:18 p.m.
The New York Times reports some passengers had to walk beside the tracks to the nearest station, nearly a mile away.
The service is owned by Port Authority, but operated by another company. Port Authority spokesman Steve Coleman told the Times the problem was a loose wire on the main computer.
He said the agency wasn't informed for nearly two hours there was a malfunction, and sent buses for stranded riders.
AirTrain carries about 50,000 riders a day.
