Riders Fight Each Other To Board Manhattan Buses

(PIX11)   As mass transit returns to the roads in New York City in the wake of Hurricane Sandy, riders are waiting in lines and pushing their way back onto buses.

Shoving matches happened as people tried to get on the bus after waiting as full buses passed them by. Cars and buses packed city streets for the first time since the storm. Traffic backups were made worse by traffic signals that weren’t working due to power outages in lower Manhattan. New York Governor Andrew Cuomo said the gridlock was “intolerable and dangerous.” On Thursday, Mayor Michael Bloomberg put restrictions in place requiring at least cars entering the city on bridges over the East River to carry at least three people.

The Metropolitan Transportation Authority says most bus routes are operating with some delays and detours. Partial subway service will begin at 6 a.m. on Thursday morning.
