New York trains, subways and buses close for Hurricane Sandy

Marketplace Contributor Oct 28, 2012

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo ordered a public transportation shutdown in New York City ahead of Hurricane Sandy, closing the subway, train and bus systems. Did you know how 27 percent of New York state residents get to work by public transportation? Another 13 percent walk to work and just under 1 percent ride their bike.
