Service restored on 7 line to Citi Field, MTA says

Service on the No. 7 subway line between 34th Street and Citi Field has returned to “good” status after an earlier suspension, the MTA said on its website late Wednesday night.

Earlier the Metropolitan Transportation Authority said the suspension was due to “signal problems along the line.”

The line runs between Flushing and 34th Street at Hudson Yards and has inspired a group of Mets fans who sit in centerfield seats and are known as the “7 Line Army.”

The outage began at 4:59 p.m., an MTA spokeswoman said.

Trains carrying fans to Citi Field for Wednesday night’s game between the Mets and the Philadelphia Phillies were held at their stations.

Service resumed at 6:39 p.m., the spokeswoman said.

Just after 10 p.m., the MTA’s website said service on the line had returned to good status on the 7 as well as the E, F, and M lines, which had also experienced delays.
