What's the most Googled New York subway question?

Posted on May 13, 2015

NEW YORK — An amNewYork report found the most Googled question over the past six months related to the New York Metropolitan Transportation Authority and the subway was “Is the L train running?”

The L train, as heavily trafficked as it is, has needed to undergo extensive work to maintain well-worn tracks, requiring five weekends of no trains in Manhattan and into Brooklyn through May 18 and overnight on weekdays through May 22. Before that, L service had been disrupted when the MTA put in a new signal system to run more trains.

Rounding out the top five is “Is the MTA running today?” “How do I get to Yankee stadium?” “How do I ride the NYC subway?” and “What time is the MTA shutting down today?” For the full story, click here.
