NEW YORK (WPIX)—The MTA has put into effect its winter weather plan due to the overnight storm that has dropped a mixture of snow and freezing rain throughout the Tri-State area.
According to the transit agency, some express trains will be running local for a portion of their route Tuesday.
"We are currently storing some trains during the overnight hours in the express tracks rather than having them in the yard, where they would be exposed to the elements," MTA Spokesperson Aaron Donovan told PIX 11 News.
"As a result, some trains that would normally run express will run local for the time being but this issue should clear up as more trains are put into service."
The A train will be running local in both directions from Euclid Avenue to Broadway Junction, and from West 4th Street-Washington Square to 207th Street.
Likewise, the No. 4 and 5 trains will be running local in both directions from Brooklyn Bridge-City Hall to 125th Street.
The Metro-North is also reporting delays on its New Haven line for the morning rush hour. Passengers on this line should expect delays of up to 30 to 40 minutes in both directions from Stamford to New Haven due to wire damage near Noroton Heights.
There are no delays reported for the Long Island Railroad.
The MTA recommends that commuters to take extra care and allow for extra time for traveling. Passengers are urged to use handrails and be cautious in train stations, and while boarding buses and trains.
