Hurricane Sandy is making it difficult to get around New York City and the storm hasn't even hit the area yet.
The Metropolitan Transportation Authority shut down its services Sunday night, including all subway, bus and commuter rail service in NYC.
“Our first priority is always safety, and the MTA is taking no chances with the safety of our customers, our employees and our equipment,” said MTA Chairman and CEO Joseph J. Lhota. “We are hoping for the best but preparing for the worst. Whatever happens, we'll be ready.”
