Posted October 11, 2018 04:27:47 The subway system is being overwhelmed as commuters try to board the subway and back at the same time, according to New York Mayor Bill de Blasio.
De Blasio told reporters Thursday that subway riders are experiencing long wait times and crowded stations.
The MTA says that since the first train was hit by a tractor-trailer Thursday, more than 200,000 riders have boarded trains, and the city is running out of trains.
The problem is not confined to the subway system, De Blasio said.
He added that there are trains that are stuck on tracks that need to be closed, and some stations are not accessible to passengers.
The mayor said he is aware of more than 150,000 people who are still waiting to board trains.
New York Gov.
Andrew Cuomo says that the MTA is doing a better job at keeping trains running, but it will take time to fix the subway network.
Cuomo told reporters that he has spoken to the president and has asked him to make sure that the situation is resolved.
Cuomo said that New York’s MTA is the largest in the country and he expects that it will be the largest and most expensive to fix.
He said that if the federal government doesn’t fix it, he expects the state will.
Cuomo also said that the president will be sending him a plan soon on how to fix it.
The president has been critical of the MTA, saying that the agency needs to do more to fix its overcrowding and that the government should fund the repairs.
He also said he hopes the MTA fixes the subway by next week.
