The MTA said it will use its experience with the Bergen St. signal to improve its operations.
Next month, we’ll release our five-year modernization plan. The computer-based interlocking system at Bergen Street was the first of its kind installed in New York City, and we have gathered great learnings over the past twelve years that are now informing our modernization plan and our procurement requirements moving forward.

[[Gervine Terry, New York Commuter]] I have been stuck in Manhattan on the F for more than 45 minutes. The 7 is a problem most of the time in the morning. They have a lot of signal problems. We need a lot of repair. But they’re constantly working on it. But I can't see the results.

(New York commuter Michelle) I think it will be helpful because I only know that there is a bus application and I don't know if there is a subway application, so if anything, it will be very helpful and useful.
(New York commuter) At the very least, there is this App. You don’t need to wait in the street for a long time. You can go to the supermarket or to eat something. The bus will be there anytime. You don’t need to stand there anymore. It's convenient.

(New York commuter Gervine Terry) I tried to get stuck in the F car in Manhattan for more than 45 minutes. Line 7 is a big problem. Usually there is a signal problem during the morning rush hour. They need to be solved. They have been repairing, but I didn't see results at all.
