Snow Continues To Impact Subway, Bus Service In NYC
NEW YORK (CBS 2/WCBS 880) — Rush hour subway commuters were encountering some service problems Tuesday. Almost every line was still being affected in some way by the snow.
“We’re trying to dig out our stranded buses. We’re working very closely with the Department of Sanitation but many roads are still impassable,” said Deirdre Parker of New York City Transit.
“We have very limited bus service out there today,” Parker said.
So what is working for the morning commute? “Our subways are back, with the exception of the Brighton Beach, Sea Beach, and the southern part of the Carnarsie Line and the Franklin Avenue shuttle,” Parker said. “We do have service back to Far Rockaway, the West End Line, and the Dyre Avenue Line.”
WCBS 880’s Steve Knight talks with “F” train passengers about their trouble getting around.
As for the lines without service Tuesday, “we’re still working around the clock to dig those areas out and run some test trains,” Parker said.
The snow had a significant impact on the above-ground trains. “Our service that’s underground is running, with some delays, but they are running.”
