January 26, 2015
3:30 p.m.
NICE bus plans to operate its normal schedule for this evening's rush hour.  However, with worsening road conditions, customers should plan for the possibility of delays.  Depending on road conditions, service may be curtailed as the evening progresses. 
NICE bus service will be suspended as of 11 p.m. tonight (buses will not leave route’s point of origin after 11 p.m.; buses on the road will finish their routes, road conditions permitting).  NICE anticipates that a.m. service Tuesday will not be provided.  Service will be reinstated as quickly as snow removal efforts allow.  Able-Ride paratransit customers with appointments Tuesday will be rescheduled for later in the week.
 A winter weather advisory has been issued for Monday PM (evening to late evening) into Tuesday. The potential of significant snowfall, ice and high winds, and BLIZZARD conditions will make roads treacherous and travel difficult.  Expect road closures (local, Parkways, and the LIE), delays, detours and SEVERELY CURTAILED SERVICE AND SERVICE SUSPENSIONS during the height of the storm, due to hazardous weather and road conditions. Areas expected to be particularly hard hit with road closures are on the North Shore. Expect DETOURS and SERVICE SUSPENSIONS for routes that service the North Shore area: n20/21, n23, n25, n27.  Additionally, coastal flooding in low lying areas is also expected, causing road closures.   Extra caution should be taken while traveling through-out the Long Island area.

ABLE RIDE service will also experience EXTREME DELAYS due to poor road conditions.  Many offices and programs are closing early today and are closed tomorrow.  Please check before riding, and if you need to reschedule, please speak with a reservationist at 516-228-4000.  Please check our website's Service Alerts section as well as our Facebook and Twitter sites @thenicebus for real time service updates.
