MTA subway stations were hit hard by the record-breaking rainfall brought on by Ida, and the repairs are still ongoing Friday along multiple lines.
Ruby Garner relies on mass transit to go about her daily routine. Like many others, her commute took a hit after Ida's rain fall. She says her bus never came.
"I stood there for four hours. I left work at 3:30 p.m. and got home here at 7 p.m."
She was not alone. Local commuters were warning fellow commuters after finding out the No. 6 train was partially suspended Friday morning after arriving at the station.
"You would hope there's some sort of notice plastered around so that you would know but what can you do?" commuter Justin Hart says
Taking multiple buses and trains is Hart's only option now.
"I'm going to be delayed from a 45-minute commute to two hours now, easily. I have to go down by Soho. It's either that or a $135 cab," Hart adds.
"I just don't understand how we are not prepared as one of the largest cities in the world. We're supposed to be prepared and equipped," says Garner.
As the MTA works to restore full service, commuters are encouraged to check their train's status before heading out the door.
