New York City is suspending 24-hour subway service to disinfect subway cars during the coronavirus crisis, Mayor Bill de Blasio and Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced Thursday.

“They (MTA) can disinfect all trains and buses every night, it can best be done by stopping train service from 1 a.m. to 5 a.m. every night during the pandemic so they can actually perform this service,” Cuomo said at a news briefing.

The Metropolitan Transit Authority, which runs the city’s public transit system, will still provide buses as well as for-hire-vehicles, compliant “dollar vans” at no cost to essential workers during those hours, said Cuomo.
