To assist those customers who want to leave work early ahead of the storm, 26 extra trains are being added to LIRR and Metro-North schedules this afternoon. The trains are departing from Penn Station and Grand Central Terminal. Express subway service will be curtailed after the evening rush hour to allow subway trains to be stored underground in anticipation of the storm. Travel later this evening will be hazardous. Bus, commuter-rail, and subway service could be curtailed on a route-by-route basis, depending on conditions and snow-removal operations. Monitor this page, Service Status, and local news reports for additional information as the weather system approaches.
