AUTO/BUS TRANSPORT THE BIG WINNER IN EAST COAST STORM

In New York City, many residents appeared to be moving about via taxicabs. Michael Woloz, a spokesman for the Metropolitan Taxicab Board of Trade, said 30 taxi garages operated by his trade group remained open. The city has mandated a zoned fare system for cab rides, which also allows for passengers to share trips.
Bus service in Manhattan and the Bronx was slowly starting to be restored on Sunday afternoon, and fares will not be charged for the rest of the day, transit officials said. Buses are leaving depots in those boroughs as drivers arrive, although that is no easy task, given the lack of subway service.
