Subways, Buses and Metro-North Hobbled by Snowstorm

(DNAINFO) Aidan Gardiner Katie Honan and Amy Langfield | March 13, 2017 — Above-ground and express subway service remained suspended Tuesday and most other transit was severely hobbled as a major storm lashed the region.

Both Gov. Andrew Cuomo and Mayor Bill de Blasio issued states of emergency ahead of the morning commute as high winds and whiteout conditions were expected. Commuters should avoid driving at all costs, the mayor said. Cuomo ordered all non-essential state workers to stay home Tuesday.
