NEW YORK — Communities across the Northeast are preparing for a late-winter snowstorm, with forecasters warning of heavy snowfall on Tuesday from Washington to New England, which will impact public transportation across the region, The New York Times reports.

In New York where a blizzard warning is in effect, the Metropolitan Transportation Authority suspended aboveground subway service in New York City with underground service still operating. Meanwhile, train service on the Long Island Rail Road and Metro-North Railroad was expected to be “significantly impacted” on Tuesday, with New Jersey Transit suspending all bus service and operating its rail lines on a weekend schedule.

In Connecticut, CTtransit bus service in eight cities around the state was also suspended. Amtrak also modified its schedule along the Northeast Corridor, including canceling Acela Express service between New York City and Boston, according to WBALTV. For the full story, click here.
