The Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) took a range of measures to deliver safe service for the Friday morning commute during the first snowfall of 2022. MTA personnel made preparations prior to and during the snowfall to keep the system safe for customers. Precautionary measures included salting platforms and stairs at stations, chaining articulated buses and keeping track switches and third rail clear of snow. MTA Bridges and Tunnels ensured roadways were clear for customers who had to travel this morning.    

A photo gallery featuring images of MTA personnel working to keep the system safe is available here.  

The Authority announced its preparations on Thursday which included Metro-North Railroad operating on a Saturday schedule with additional trains during the morning and evening peak periods. New York City Transit and Long Island Rail Road operated on regular weekday schedules with minimal delays.
