MTA set to halt above-ground subway service as snows batters NYC

Above-ground subway service will end at 2 p.m. on Monday as snow continues to accumulate across the city, transit officials said.

“If you are not home and you need to get home, you need to start making your way there now,” Interim Transit President Sarah Feinberg said during a briefing at Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s office in Manhattan.

“We will obviously reopen as soon as it’s safe to do so, but it’s a little unclear on when that will be,” Feinberg said.

“Underground service will continue to operate. If we have to, obviously, we can stop that as well, and we have every contingency plan in place. But for now we are not planning for that.”

Feinberg said buses would continue to operate, but that some routes will likely be suspended as conditions deteriorate.

“We will be focused on restarting service as soon as we possibly can,” she said.

“But… if you don’t have to be out for essential work, please don’t be.”
