“Subway ridership has risen dramatically since the 1990s, when about four million people used the system each day. Now it is nearly six million riders each day — the highest level since the 1940s. Those extra riders are cramming onto a system that is essentially the same size it has been for decades.”

“Overcrowding now accounts for more than one-third of the nearly 75,000 subway delays across the system each month.”
