The MTA Is Back… Sort Of
— Andrew Cuomo (@NYGovCuomo) October 31, 2012
According to the MTA’s official website, “Thursday morning, there will be limited subway service on several routes, supplemented by a bus shuttle between Downtown Brooklyn and Midtown. There will be no subway service between 34th St in Midtown and Downtown Brooklyn– While both limited rail and subway service is being restored on a line by line and branch by branch basis, the work to restore full service on the commuter rail and subway network is ongoing”.
MTA officials have been hard at work trying to restore all of the services, but as many have already conceded; this is possibly the worst natural disaster the MTA has faced in its 108 years of existence. The level of flooding is simply unprecedented. Officials have been keeping commuters up to date with the process, which currently has thousands of MTA workers going over 5,000 plus square miles in order to inspect and repair damaged infrastructure and tunnels. The Metro north in particular is still working on moving debris from their tracks and recovering electricity.
Bus services have mostly been restored to regular service, but anyone planning on taking the train on Thursday should plan their schedules earlier than usual.
