Just hope that the new NICE drivers are skilled enough to handle driving in the snow if need be. I imagine that some routes will have to be short turned to avoid dangerous areas as well.

What the hell am I reading?  Do you really think they'll send operators out in blizzard conditions?

There are lots of hilly areas in Long Island, so properly NICE might properly suspend some bus routes that goes on hill.

If storm was worst, properly it might suspend service with MTA.

Yes, that was what I was thinking.

Most likely, they'll give detours if service is still running.

If the county asks people to stay off the road, the buses will be stopped. Its not up to NICE, its up to the higher power.

Fixed, this is the 3rd time I edited, I dunno why it didn't work before.  Oh well...

Was there a blizzard when NICE was in control.

With 8+ inches I think it will be pretty safe to say there will be no LIRR, SCT, or NICE running on Long Island...

Why not? After all-the new hires were trained in the employee parking lot-lol.

I will have to give credit where credit is due, NICE did a much better job keeping people informed about the conditions during this snowstorm than the MTA. And all the buses I took this afternoon came on schedule. In this case, NICE did a better job than (MTA) LI Bus did after similar storms in the past.

NICE has been very good with keeping people informed on most things through their Facebook page. I usually get a fast response on there too!
