A new report says New York City subway delays are getting worse.

Subway delays are getting worse and those delays are costing New Yorkers a lot of precious time and money.

New York City's Independent Budget Office found the average number of delays has increased dramatically, from about 20,000 a month in 2012 to more than 67,000 in May of this year.

In the same time period, the average number of passenger hours lost during the morning rush grew by 45 percent.

The value of those hours on a typical workday is about $1.2 million a day.

Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams asked the IBO to estimate the time being lost to riders because of the disruptions and to put the lost hours into monetary terms for riders and the local economy.
