NYC Transit System (Subways and Buses)
MTA will shut down service and disinfect the NYC Transit System daily from 1:00 am to 5:00 am until further notice. For more information, go to https://new.mta.info/coronavirus/overnight.
Many service lines are limited. At this time, the MTA is requesting that travel on subways and buses be limited to those who travel for an essential business, including health care workers, first responders, and other essential personnel. In addition, individuals using the MTA for personal COVID-19 business, such as a medical appointment, may also use public transportation.
Operators on MTA buses are not collecting fares for the time being to maintain social distancing for bus operators and customers, although riders on Select Bus Service routes must still pay at curbside fareboxes. Riders must board local buses using the rear door.
MTA is running a modified schedule on the Hudson, Harlem, and New Haven lines until further notice.
