Subways, rail service to begin drawing down Monday evening

New York City's subways will begin to see a decrease in service as early as 7 p.m. ahead of the incoming snowstorm, Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Monday.

Cuomo declared a state of emergency for the five borough, as well as surrounding counties including Suffolk, Nassau and Westchester.

"This is not a situation that should be taken lightly," the governor said from Manhattan. "It could be a matter of life and death. Caution is required."

The MTA will add 26 trains will be added to Long Island Rail Road and Metro-North services leaving from Penn Station and Grand Central as the wintery weather begins to worsen.

Transportation Commissioner Polly Trottenberg told reporters that the Staten Island Ferry was still operational, but that the situation could change by the evening rush hour.

The Metropolitan Transportation Authority said 14 Metro-North trains that typically leave Grand Central after 5 p.m. are either cancelled or combined with other service.

All rail service is expected to end by 11 p.m. until further notice.

Mayor Bill de Blasio said 11 p.m. would also be the latest that any non-emergency vehicles can move on city streets.

Cuomo also said the state would decide by the afternoon on a travel ban on all main roads through the affected areas effective 11 p.m.
