With Hurricane Sandy fast approaching, New York's Governor Cuomo took the drastic step of shutting down the MTA, meaning that as of 7 pm on Sunday, there will be no bus or train service.

"The MTA has been directed by Governor Andrew M. Cuomo to begin an orderly shutdown and suspension of all subway, bus and commuter railroad service at 7 p.m. Sunday. The decision was made to protect customers, employees and equipment from the wrath of Hurricane Sandy as the strong storm continues its march up the east coast," the MTA said in a statement.
