About these service changes
While forecasted temperatures and snow accumulations inform our preparations, the actual intensity of the storm, road conditions, and our ability to clear tracks will dictate the level of service we can safely provide and/or restore.
We urge all of our customers to take extra care when traveling. Stay clear of the platform edges, use handrails, and walk carefully when entering or exiting stations and boarding or leaving trains and buses. Please allow extra time for travel during the storm.
