By now you’ve probably heard of the pretty big FAIL that happened around 7pm this evening (perfect timing)…those of you following on Twitter would have received some updates as I learned of them while I was out and about.
Readers also wrote in with firsthand accounts, such as this one from Warren about an hour or so ago:
7:15 pm Here I stand on the N in the subway stuck between Van Ness station and Church for the 15th minute. The train operator says there’s a problem up ahead and crews are on the way to fix the problem. The train starts to crawl but goes about 10 feet then stops again.
7:22 pm The train operator announces that the problem is serious, but that we would start moving again.
7:25 pm We make it outside. It looks like L,K, and M riders will be stuck for a while.
Several others also wrote or Twittered in with reports as well. The irony that all of this is happening on the eve of fare hikes and service cuts? Priceless.
UPDATE: Tommy the bartender at the Blackthorn was commuting on the way to the BT, and was held up, and reports this interesting piece of news as he’s still delayed on his way in tonight.
