Multiple dead trains on the MBTA caused a severe backup during Friday morning's commute.

The transit agency told the Boston Globe that disabled trains blocked tracks on the Green, Orange and Red lines. The MBTA is investigating the breakdowns, and tweeted an apology to passengers:


"Soon" appears to be relative: The first new trains won't be delivered until 2018.

Commuters took to social media to vent their frustration about the delays, reporting crowds of angry riders on T platforms.
