MTA Service Status

NYC Transit Works Through Storm

MTA New York City Transit expects normal subway service for Friday morning rush hour.

The following outdoor subway lines at the following locations are subject to temporary suspension between midnight and 4 a.m.:

·         B Subway Line Icon and Q Subway Line Icon trains along the Brighton Line in Brooklyn from Prospect Park to Stillwell Av.

·         N Subway Line Icon trains along the Sea Beach Line in Brooklyn from 59 St to Stillwell Av.

·         The Franklin Av S Subway Line Icon Shuttle in Brooklyn

·         A Subway Line Icon and S Subway Line Icon shuttle trains along the Rockaway Line in Queens from Rockaway Blvd to Beach 116 St and Far Rockaway

·         5 Subway Line Icon trains along the Dyre Av Line from E 180th St to Dyre Av

All buses operating in the storm will be equipped with tire chains to enhance their traction on snow and ice. However, even with tire chains, buses will be susceptible to delays based on road conditions and topography.  Supervisors and tow trucks will be posted throughout the city to respond quickly to any buses which are unable to move because of road conditions.

More than 1,000 subway workers have been working to clear snow and ice from subway stations, starting first with those stations located outdoors.  However, the additional snow accumulating overnight may present challenging conditions for customers during the morning commute. All customers are advised to use extreme caution, hold handrails and stay away from the platform edge for safety.

Paratransit customers may also experience additional travel and wait times. Customers may want to reconsider travel, unless medically necessary.
