WILLIAMSBURG — Manhattan-bound L trains halted service at the Bedford Avenue stop for a half-hour during the Thursday morning commute, according to the MTA.

The delay between Bedford Avenue and Eighth Avenue began about 8:22 a.m. and was linked to mechanical problems at the 14th Street and Union Square station, according to the MTA's site

Many commuters left the station during the stoppage, noting that cabs and Ubers had started showing up around the station.

Service ran with delays until after 9 a.m.

It's not the first time in recent weeks that L train commuters have suffered.

In March, the train stopped running to Manhattan for three hours during a Monday-morning commute due to a broken rail at the Bedford Avenue station.

And shortly before that, the train suddenly stopped running between Lorimer Street and Myrtle-Wyckoff Avenue during the evening commute.

L train riders will also be facing major service disruptions when the train stops running between Lorimer Street and Eighth Avenue during weekends until May 18.
