The MTA announced at around 6:20 p.m. Friday that “all 1,2,3,4,5,6 and S trains are suspended in both directions” because of “a network communication issue.” Rush hour riders were stuck on trains and eventually forced to head into the steamy temperatures to get home.
Some were dealing with pretty brutal conditions:
@NYCTSubway 1 train stuck in between 125th and 137th for close to 20 min now. In cart 1872 with no AC.
