• Always be aware of alternate forms of transportation in case your primary form is out of service.
  • Check to see if your subway or bus line is undergoing maintenance and plan accordingly.


  • If subway is out of service for any reason, take bus service to your destination. You can take either MTA buses using your MetroCard or NYU buses using your school ID.
  • If bus service is not available, use a ride sharing service (Uber, Lyft, etc.) or take a taxi.
  • If all other services are unavailable and weather permits, consider walking or using a bike sharing service.
