NYC Travel Ban Has Just Been Announced; LIRR, Metro-North, and Exterior Subway Lines Will Shut Down at 4 P.M.

It's official, New Yorkers. 

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has just imposed a citywide travel ban on New York City roads by 2:30 p.m., and all inbound MTA commuter railroads (Long Island Railroad and Metro-North) travel will be banned by 4 p.m. 

So what does a full travel ban on the roads really mean?  

"That literally means except for emergency vehicles and authorized people, all other travel on roads is banned," Mayor de Blasio said.

Also, all exterior subway exterior subway lines, which includes the 7, Q, A, N and F trains, will close at 4 p.m. as well. 

The most recent forecasts are now calling for as much as 30 inches of snow, and thousands of flights have already been cancelled.

“This is a major storm, and travel conditions throughout downstate New York are dangerous,” Cuomo said. “We are doing everything possible to keep the roads and mass transit operational, but unless there is an emergency people should not be traveling. 


"We are responding aggressively as the storm develops and working hand-in-hand with our local partners to keep communities safe. I urge all New Yorkers to stay home, stay warm, and allow our emergency personnel to do their jobs.”

Sooooo, all that being said... who's down for some Netflix and chill
