MTA: Subways Back on Schedule After Train Surfer Delays Various Lines Ahead of Afternoon Rush

The N, Q, R and W train were impacted

Reports of a train surfer delayed a slew of subways in Midtown ahead of the Thursday afternoon rush, according to the MTA.

The transportation agency announced in a tweet shortly before 4 p.m.: “N Q R W trains are delayed in both directions in Midtown because a disruptive person is surfing on trains and trespassing onto the tracks.”

However, the issue was resolved less than an hour later and the train lines were getting back on schedule following the initial reports.
