LIVE look at the D train platform at 155th Street station. Feel bad for the B train riders at the same station who *just* missed out on the honor.

- Chin up, R train riders. Your line's weekday on-time performance in May 2019 was 69.6%. But in May 2018, it was a not-so-hot 58.6%. An R train 🔥🔥🔥 streak, perhaps?
