Cuomo: “Bus Bridge” Linking Manhattan and Brooklyn Coming Soon

A few quick takeaways from Governor Cuomo’s recently-concluded press conference on the recovery from Sandy:

Mayor Bloomberg has a press conference scheduled for 1:30, so we hope to have more specifics on the emergency surface transportation plans then.

Update 2: The Governor’s office has released a list of all subway and emergency shuttle bus service that will be operational as of 2 p.m. this afternoon tomorrow morning. There are three shuttle bus routes — two plying the Manhattan Bridge and one on the Williamsburg Bridge — filling some of the gaps in subway service:
