MTA Prepares for Winter Storm Juno
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.
New York City Transit
NYC Transit personnel are in place to clear platforms and stairs of snow.  De-icers and snow-throwers have been strategically deployed to focus on outdoor areas and open cuts that are the most susceptible to high snow accumulations.
Express service will be curtailed shortly after the evening rush hour to allow trains to be stored underground on express tracks in anticipation of the forecast storm. All overnight subway construction work has been cancelled.
The MTA is planning to operate normal bus service for this evening's rush hour, but depending on road conditions, service may be curtailed as the evening progresses. All local buses, including articulated buses, will have chains or snow tires installed by this afternoon's rush hour.
Paratransit customers may experience additional travel and wait times. 
Long Island Rail Road
The LIRR will provide extra trains that will depart from Penn Station between 2 PM and 4 PM for the convenience of commuters who want to leave work early ahead of the storm.  The LIRR may need to suspend service as of 11 PM tonight, subject to further evaluation of the severity of the storm.   Please click "read more" to see a listing of extra trains.
Metro-North Railroad
In advance of Winter Storm Juno, Metro-North will operate an early getaway schedule today.  Extra trains will depart Grand Central Terminal between 1 p.m. and 4 p.m., with regular schedules between 4 p.m. and 5 p.m., and fewer trains than a regular rush hour between 5 p.m. and 8 p.m.
Bridges and Tunnels
MTA Bridges and Tunnels is ready to battle winter weather with 97 conveyors, pay loaders, front loaders and pick-up trucks with plows to clear snow, along with nearly 9,000 tons of anti-corrosive de-icer.
