Number 7 Is Number 1

Wednesday, July 15, 2009

The Straphangers Campaign annual ranking of the city's 22 major subway lines comes out today. The Number 7 line, between Flushing, Queens, and Times Square, takes the lead for its frequent service, clean cars and availability of seats during rush hour. The Number 7 beat out the defending champion L line, which came in second, mainly because more and more cars on the L are breaking down.

The C train fared the worst, falling behind last year's loser, the W.
