NEW YORK (AP) — Motorists can get back on the roads in New Jersey and New York City, and subways and buses are restarting.

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo says a snowstorm-related New York City area travel ban is lifted, except for Suffolk County on Long Island. He says drivers should still use extreme caution.

He also says subway, bus and rail service will start phasing in service at 9 a.m. and expects to be back on a Sunday schedule by noon.

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie lifted the ban on travel statewide at 7:30 a.m. Tuesday. The restrictions were put in place on Monday night to aid plowing.

NJ Transit train service remains suspended. Buses are running in southern New Jersey, and should resume this morning in the northern half of the state.
