THE BRONX - A study by the Straphangers Campaign says that delays in the MTA’s subway service were up 10 percent, 10 months before Superstorm Sandy.

It also says the storm caused a nearly 30 percent increase in train delays during the first three months of this year.

The MTA, however, says the study does not paint a full picture of service issues.
