MTA Long Island Rail Road will continue to operate reduced service for the AM peak rush-hour on Friday, running 135 morning rush hour trains – nine less than normal – as it continues to recover from the storm and so inspections, delayed by snowfall, can continue following Wednesday’s non-passenger train derailment of one train car.
Departing trains will leave generally within 10 minutes of the canceled trains and will be making additional stops.
While snowfall has stopped, blowing wind and icy conditionals will impact the schedule. LIRR urges customers to check the LIRR’s digital information streams listed below before traveling.
“There remains the potential for weather-related difficulties and challenges to affect our operations tomorrow, but we expect to continue to provide service that meets customer demands and to get people to work safely again tomorrow,” said Patrick Nowakowski, President of the LIRR.
