La ruta del tren W se cambió para tratar de contrarrestar los recortes en el servicio.

Debido a los recortes al presupuesto de la ciudad de NY, los trenes W y V dejaron de funcionar y la ruta del tren Q se extendió hasta Astoria, Queens, para reemplazar al W. También, la ruta M fue alterada en el bajo Manhattan para cubrir las rutas abandonadas por el tren V.

Con la llegada del verano, altas temperaturas y mucha humedad, también llegan las largas esperas en las estaciones de los trenes en donde el sudor comienza a rodar para acabar con la paciencia de los usuarios.

Algunos cambios también reducen la frecuencia de los trenes a determinadas horas y abordar un tren en la noche puede ser una tarea larga y difícil.

En otras palabras, la crisis económica está afectando la calidad del servicio de trenes y buses porque pasarán con menos frecuencia o simplemente serán cancelados.

Desde el domingo 27 de junio entraron en efecto los siguientes cambios en las rutas de buses en los cinco condados de la ciudad de Nueva York. Los datos fueron suministrados por la Autoridad de Transporte (MTA).
