NYC Subway Trains Shut Down Due To Bed Bug Infestation
If you’re a regular commuter or tourist in New York City, here’s some exciting news: Earlier this week, MTA officials discovered that three N trains were infested with bedbugs.
The New York Daily News reports that two of the trains were taken out of service while a third was sent for fumigation.
“When we found them, we exterminated them,” Metropolitan Transportation Authority spokesman Adam Lisberg told the Daily News. At least some of the bugs were found in the cabs used by the trains’ motorman and conductors; it’s not clear if any were discovered in the passenger area.
