Roosevelt Island Tram Station and Tram Cabin Overcrowding Today- Only 1 Tram Cabin Operating Today And No F Train Subway Service To Manhattan From Roosevelt Island
Reported yesterday on the lack of Manhattan bound F Train subway service from Roosevelt Island this weekend and previous meeting of Roosevelt Island Operating Corp (RIOC) Operations Committee meeting in which the RIOC Directors complained to RIOC staff when only one Tram Cabin was operating during previous F train subway service disruptions.
It happened again today that only one Tram cabin was operating when there was no F train service from Roosevelt Island to Manhattan. One resident reported this morning:
The tram station is so packed that I had to wait for the next tram due to overcrowding. I am now running late for work and very irritated; all as the other tram car sits idly behind me. I don't get the point of having two trams if only one will be in use. When are we going to get some better management for this thing???When I arrived at the Roosevelt Island Tram Station this afternoon, the area was jam packed with people waiting for the Tram. Only one cabin was in operation because there was a problem with a gear on the South Tower. I was told that as soon as the Tram Tower problem was fixed, both cabins would be running.
Here's what happened while waiting at the Tram Station this afternoon
and then boarding the one working Tram Cabin. The Tram Cabin was so overcrowded that several people were asked to get off and wait for the next Tram. The Cabin Operator made the best of a bad situation and did his job very well.
