MTA is advising that some subway or bus service may be curtailed because of the winter storm. For now, subway service is on or close to schedule.

Snow-fighting equipment has been deployed at strategic locations throughout the city if conditions deteriorate.

The following subway service changes may be in effect in the system:

  • AEDFNQ2345 trains may run local for portions of their route.
  • G service between Court Sq and 71st-Continental Avenues may be suspended.
  • BVW trains may end their runs earlier than usual.
  • 6 service in the Bronx may be local.

    Possible service changes are detailed on NYC Transit service posters, which are in subway cars and stations throughout the system.

    All scheduled maintenance, repair and upgrade projects that would impact service have been canceled. Closures of stations/platforms for rehabilitation will not be affected.

    For bus service, salt trucks are helping clear routes and bus stops.

    The MTA equipped tires on all articulated buses and coaches with chains.

    All subway and bus customers are urged to give themselves extra travel time whenever there is inclement weather.
