Glitched NYC Subway Automated Announcements

Description

Recently, the automated announcement systems on many of the R142 cars on the 2 and 5 lines have exhibited glitches that hinder, distract from, or sometimes even entirely prevent all of the information about the station from being announced. These glitches occur at any station that has transfers to another line. When the glitch occurs, the 'Ding' sound usually heard when the conductor is going to manually speak through the PA system plays, followed by the playing of a snippet of an extraneous sound clip from the automated announcement system, such as the doors closing chimes or part of the "stand clear of the closing doors" announcement.
