The IBO’s report is… to the point:
Disruptions are taking an increasing toll. The average number of delays in a month has increased dramatically, from about 20,000 a month in 2012 to more than 67,450 in May 2017. The average number of passenger-hours lost during the morning rush grew by 45 percent to almost 35,000 hours from 2012 to the 12-month period ending in May 2017.
Some eyebrow-raising data points:
- The monthly number of passenger-hours of delay during the morning peak grew 45.3 percent from 2012 through May 2017, while average weekday ridership on the subway was just 8.5 percent higher
- About one-fourth of weekday train runs have gaps in service
- Passenger-hours lost to delays on a typical weekday during the morning rush have increased — most on the J/Z (up 71 percent), C (69 percent) and the 7 (62 percent)
- Lost hours have increased the least on the 3 (up 25 percent), G (26 percent) and 4 (31 percent)
- The dollar value of the hours lost to delays on a typical workday morning is about $1.2 million a day, or $307 million annually
