For the first time in 115 years, overnight subway service in New York City has been shut down to clean trains amid the pandemic

Sharing is Caring!

New York City’s subway system — the nation’s largest — went silent in the early morning hours Wednesday as the normally round-the-clock system shut down for train disinfecting.

Service was curtailed in late March, but is now being stopped entirely from 1 a.m. to 5 a.m. each day.

It’s the first time in 115 years service hasn’t been 24/7 except in times of emergency, and Governor Andrew Cuomo says there’s no way to know when service will return to normal, notes CBS New York.
