It’s all part of a promotional campaign for her upcoming Comedy Central series, “Nora From Queens.” Fittingly, the 7 train runs from Flushing, Queens, to Chelsea, Manhattan.
Her announcements pepper the commute with personality and witticisms, like, “Hey, fellas — stop manspreading!” and “This is Times Square — 42nd Street — where New Yorkers go to relax!”
That’s not to say she doesn’t take the conductor’s job seriously. The rapper-turned-superstar announces train transfers and bus service with equal aplomb.
“We are exploring new and different ways to generate much needed revenue, while also surprising and delighting customers,” the system’s chief customer officer, Sarah Meyer, said in the statement about the Comedy Central project.
“Our focus will always be to run the trains safely and on time,” she said. “And if a well-known voice can bring attention to in-car messaging, we are all for it.”
