MIDTOWN — The MTA is having their rapid response team focus on three lines that have seen the biggest increase in wait times during the past three years, according to an MTA spokeswoman.
The team, composed of workers who can quickly address issues like signal problems, will focus on the 6, 7 and F lines.
Workers have been stationed closer to those lines and the agency hopes they will reduce wait times and lessen overcrowding on trains.
The team is also using ultrasonic detectors to help better find problems with rails on those lines before they break.
The 7 line has been problematic this spring. Most recently, service was shut down between Manhattan and Queens on May 11 because of signal problems.
