The E train turned into an F train.
The announcement was made two stops before the train would be heading along a different line.
The announcement was difficult to hear. Some of the tourists headed to the airport were lost. Neighbors knew their walk home would take more time.
The MTA releases real-time information about the status of trains to riders and developers of websites and applications.
PIX11's Greg Mocker was on a train that, due to "switch problems," changed its route. He wondered about other ways to access information about the rides. He talked to Roadify about "crowd sourcing" this information.
Alerts were issued by the MTA about issues along the E line. Dozens of alerts are issued everyday for the system.AlertMe
