NEW YORK (AP) - New York’s governor says a travel ban he instituted during a massive snowstorm will likely be lifted by morning.

Andrew Cuomo (KWOH’-moh) says Saturday he expects to lift the ban that barred non-emergency motorists from being on the roads by 7 a.m. Sunday.

Officials had warned that police would enforce the ban so that workers could clear the roads. Cuomo says he’s unaware of any arrests.

The governor declared a state of emergency Saturday throughout New York City and its suburbs during the storm.

Transit officials have shut down the above-ground portions of the Metro-North, Long Island Rail Road and city subway systems.

Public buses stopped running at noon in New York City.

Cuomo says officials will advise by 6 a.m. Sunday whether above-ground subway service will resume.
