Full New York City Mass Transit Shutdown Scheduled For Noon Saturday

Friday, August 26th, 2011


If you haven’t already heard the news, all mass transit (subways, buses, MetroNorth trains, etc.) will be shut down tomorrow at 12:00 pm in preparation for Hurricane Irene. The city is considering suspending all taxi service as well.

I wouldn’t plan on being able to go anywhere you can’t walk to both tomorrow and Sunday (and keep in mind that would involve walking through a drenching downpour and possible 40 – 60 mph winds).

Depending on how hard the storm hits, there’s a chance service will not be entirely restored by Monday, which should make that morning’s commute… interesting.
