The MTA will discipline workers responsible for letting trash fall off a waste transport train — debris that triggered a series of subway delays and contributed to Wednesday morning’s rush-hour mayhem.
The garbage fell on the tracks and caused a Q train to get stuck north of the Canal St. station at approximately 6 a.m. The same train got jammed up at the DeKalb Ave. stop in Brooklyn close to 45 minutes later, transit officials said.
The breakdowns had a ripple effect and created a rush-hour nightmare for thousands of commuters.
Service was delayed or rerouted on the D, E, F, M, N, Q and R lines, MTA officials said.
