No. 7 train service has resumed with delays Monday after service was suspended earlier due to a train with mechanical problems at Fifth Avenue, according to the MTA.

Main Street-bound No. 7 trains are running express from 74 St.-Broadway to Mets-Willets Point.

To get around the problem, riders should use the N and Q at Queensboro Plaza or the E, F, M and R at Roosevelt Avenue-Jackson Heights.

Commuters had a rough start to the week on New Jersey Transit, as well, but NJ Transit riders should no longer expect delays as trains are now running on or close to schedule in and out of Penn Station. Residual delays only affect trains already in route.

Earlier congestion in Penn Station delayed trains for up to 30 minutes in both directions.

Rail service to and from Hoboken remains suspended while the NTSB continues to investigate last week’s fatal train crash.

The Hoboken Ferry service is operating, and PATH and ferries are cross honoring NJ Transit customers.
