Here is the latest winter storm update for NYC Transit:
Due to deteriorating weather conditions, and for the safety of our employees and customers, NYC Transit will begin an orderly shutdown of all elevated and open cut (exterior) portions of the subway system. The last trains to leave terminals will depart at 4:00pm. The subway will operate underground only for the remainder of this storm. NYC Transit and MTA Bus local, limited and express bus service is currently suspended. Access-A-Ride service has begun an orderly shut down of service. During the duration of this storm Subway Time and Bus Time will no longer be available.
We advise customers who do not have to travel to remain at home until the current weather conditions subside and roads cleared for safe operations
Crews have been pre-positioned to respond to areas prone to weather related problems, and platforms are being cleared of snow and salted. Our fleet of deicer trains are currently running to keep rails free of ice accumulation and snow build up. Our Snow Thrower and Jet Blower trains are also manned and are being deployed as necessary to remove any snow from the rails.
