Nearly three out of every four subway riders have been late to a work meeting due to train delays, according to a report released Sunday by the city comptroller’s office.
Comptroller Scott Stringer’s office interviewed more than 1,220 train riders last month to quantify the toll that train problems have taken on commuters. The results, Stringer said, are troubling.
About 18 percent of respondents have been reprimanded for tardiness at work over the past three months, about 13 percent of riders lost wages and 2 percent were fired because of subway delays.
“This shows the crisis is real and the impact is real on the people of New York City,” Stringer said.
