The Independent Budget Office released yet another incriminating report this week about New York City’s subway system. Not only are the subway’s growing delays costing the city up to $389 million each year, the IBO also found that delays end up setting back New Yorkers nearly $1.23 million every day in lost work time, totaling about $307 million every year. And now, the budget office on Wednesday released a report that breaks down the length of time passengers wait on a station platform for every subway line, except shuttles. According to the report, the average number of passenger hours lost to delays systemwide during the work week between 7 am and 10 am this year grew by 45 percent from 2012. Plus, the J/Z-, C- and 7-trains experienced the greatest increase in delays from 2012.
