The MTA had one of the lowest moments in weather history during the blizzard of 2010, when buses were stranded and passengers stuck on snow-bound trains for hours. But there's been no opportunity to test out lessons learned this winter.
In advance of the first biggish storm of the season in NYC, a predicted 2-6 inches, the MTA is showing off its snow-removal equipment this time around. The MTA says it will run normal service Saturday, but advices customers to check its mta.info website for updates. All track work and repair is suspended during the storm.
