MTA service changes: Snow to impact subways, buses, LIRR

More than a foot of snow was expected in parts of New York City on Thursday, leaving the Metropolitan Transportation Authority with the task of keeping the city's mass transit moving as smooth as possible.

While morning commuters didn't see much impact, there were some transit changes on the Long Island Rail Road for the evening rush.

Here's a look at the weather-related service changes so far:

Subways
No. 6 trains: There are no express trains in the Bronx due to the Cold Weather Plan, the MTA said.
Express subway service on A, B, E, D, F, N, Q, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 will end early Thursday night.

Buses
All local, limited, select and express buses across the five boroughs are running with delays, the MTA said.
Q83 detour: Eastbound buses will terminate at Springfield Boulevard due to icy road conditions on 114th Avenue between Springfield Boulevard and 227th Street.

LIRR
The LIRR has canceled 20 of its 131 evening rush trains that run between 3:27 and 6:33 p.m., as the railroad deals with blizzard conditions on Long Island.

The LIRR also said it is experiencing systemwide delays averaging 20 to 30 minutes as a result of the winter storm.

The railroad warned it would temporarily shut down service if snow totals exceed 10 to 13 inches, "to ensure the safety of our customers and employees, and to allow snow-fighting equipment to clear snow from the track and third rail."

Metro-North
No weather-related service changes.
