We’re quick to write off the MTA as incompetent whenever we experience a subway delay, but let this video convince you that they do indeed know what they’re doing. This new short created by the agency explains why holding a train can actually prevent additional delays from happening. As it turns out, keeping gaps from growing and restoring evenness to a line will help keep service on schedule overall. Check out their awesome 8-bit video ahead to get the visual explanation.

The video was created as part of campaign to curb delays in large, populous cities with growing riderships that are reaching record levels.
