Westchester commuters breathe sigh of relief at end of transit strike
The announcement that the transit strike was officially over Friday was an early holiday gift to Westchester commuters.
The Transport Workers Union (TWU) has agreed to return to work while negotiations continue with the MTA. For the past three days, commuting to Manhattan was a nightmare for residents, whether they drove or took the train. Despite the inconveniences, many at the Metro-North station in Yonkers said they had sympathy for the TWU members.
The restrictions that were in place for drivers to NYC have been lifted and Metro-North?s contingency plan was shelved as buses and subways are expected to be back to normal by Friday.
