New York’s airports slowly began to open up this evening following massive delays, closures and cancellations after a blizzard dumped upwards of 20 inches of snow on the tristate area.
Both Kennedy and LaGuardia Airports reopened this evening, and while some flights were listed as on time, there were still some delays. Flights at Newark International Airport resumed just before 7 p.m.
Even though the clogged airports started to resume activity, commuters trying to get home by rail this evening were still in for a tough ride.
Subways and buses are running, but the MTA is reporting that service had been suspended on outdoor sections of the A, C, E, B, D, F, M, J, Z, N, Q and R lines. There were also service changes on the 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 and L lines.
MTA bus service has been suspended as the city gets to plowing the roads. Currently, there are 1,029 buses stuck around the five boroughs.
NJ Transit said its rail service into and out of New York was suspended due to a signal problem in the vicinity of Penn Station. The problem also is affecting Amtrak service.
NJ Transit spokesman Dan Stessel said Amtrak is working to fix the problem and he expects it to be short-lived. The problem occurred around 4 p.m.
