If you thought that maybe this year, MTA trains were letting you down more than usual, well, you're not alone — even the MTA agrees that delays increased this year.
In April 2015, there were nearly 49,000 delays. In April of this year, they had slightly more than 50,000 delays.
The transit agency says overcrowding has gotten worse, accounting for 38% of delays in April.
People took nearly 1.8 billion rides on subways last year, setting a new record.
The MTA also says the older cars, the C and the J, have been having more frequent issues than last year, leading to additional delays.
But the newer cars in the system are showing signs of slowing down as well.
Some of the new cars on the 4, 6 and L lines dropped in reliability by more than 35%.
