NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — The NYPIRG Straphangers Campaign has released its annual report card on the best and worst subway lines in New York City.
As 1010 WINS’ Carol D’Auria reported, for as long as Derek Jeter has been playing for the Yankees, the Straphangers Campaign has been rating the subway lines, and for those 16 years the No. 7 line has been the most frequent top performer.
It’s been dubbed “The Lucky 7,” as the report has once again named the No. 7 line the best in the subway system.
Straphangers Campaign spokesman Gene Russianoff told D’Auria the worst line is the No. 2, which runs from Brooklyn College to Pelham in the Bronx.
“It ranked below average on three of our major measurements: how often their trains break down, how regular their service is,” Russianoff said.
Subway rider James knew the third category the No. 2 failed.
“The No. 2 train is the most crowded train in the system,” he said. “You can never get a seat, and they spread their legs out.”
