FOIL Request


Welcome to the NYC Transit Delay Verification System. This service provides verification of subway delays only, and for delays that have occurred in the last 90 days. If you are seeking verification for a subway trip that is more than 90 days old, you must file under the Freedom of Information Law (FOIL).

Please write to MTA NYCT - F.O.I.L., 130 Livingston Street, Room #1214, Brooklyn, NY 11201. In addition to providing your name and email address, please provide the date, time and subway line(s) of the delayed trip. Please also provide any subway transfers you may have also made.

While we make every effort to run our trains to schedule, delays occur for a variety of reasons, including sick passengers, police investigations, scheduled and unscheduled maintenance and other factors. Thank you for your patience and riding with NYC Transit.

We hope this information is helpful.
