The J/Z line was the line that encountered the fewest delays, improving nine percent from last year. Incidents of delays in Brooklyn were up a staggering 39 percent year over year, according to the Campaign, while most of the delays, 35 percent of them, were due to "mechanical problems." The occurrence of mechanical delays are up 51 percent since 2011.
