For the third year in a row, the C train has earned the unwelcome distinction of being the worst subway line in New York City.      

The NYPIRG Straphangers Campaign disparaged the line in its 14th annual State of the Subways report, which ranks subway lines based on transit data.      

This year, the 2 train tied with the C for the lowest ranking.      

The Straphangers ranked the C poorly on scheduled service, delays caused by mechanical breakdowns and subway car announcements.      

The crowded 2 train was the weakest in seat availability during rush hours.
