Hurricane Sandy Accommodations: Subway/Buses Running?

A nephew left PACE in Brooklyn yesterday afternoon and reported they're contemplating this action. Anyone local hear anything about this? Thank-you

Yes, they are saying buses are free of charge today and tomorrow.

Explorer --who said cabs are out of business. Where did you get that from? Cabs ARE allowed to take multiple fares.

Buses have been running for about an hour now, but not all lines. I talked to a dispatcher on 34th Street who showed me his list -- the M34, the M2, the M5, and about 15 other lines in Manahttan. Sorry, no info about other boroughs, or about tomorrow...

rdglady, "a lot" not all most likely. Don't know where they park them but many parked in an area that flooded so those cabs need to be rehabbed I guess and, so, are out of business/use for now.

Ah, looking at my old NY residential beaches just now. Huff's pix of one of them...among 45 pix, they are the bleakest, blackest, saddest, most devastated ones in this particular article...vast fire. But, hey, there's a rainbow in the last shot. Typical of NY, they will recover.

Mayor just said 4000 cabs are on the street with more to come. Cabs can share fares and black towncars can pick up street hails.

Buses will be free tmw.

The news also said something about special pricing for cabs (and a general shortage of them).

I should also interject something kateoz said on another topic, something significant that I had not considered. There are some buses but very packed with people, so much so that a friend of hers gave up after two hours of trying to get on one and went home. People are trying to get to work for one thing.

News that many subway lines will partially open tomorrow. Many will only go south until Times Square or 34 St. Others will only operate in Brooklyn (not into Manhattan). More to come.
