LIRR

The MTA Long Island Rail Road expects to operate normal morning rush hour service, Thursday, February 11, based on the current forecast for snow accumulations.

The LIRR operated a near-normal morning rush hour on Wednesday and offered extra, early-afternoon eastbound service out of Penn Station to get customers home. By late afternoon, over 90% of the customers that traveled in during the morning had returned home safely. The LIRR experienced significantly lower ridership - 46 percent less than usual - as a result of Wednesday's storm.

In continuing to deal with the storm, the LIRR has its switch heaters on, is operating its antifreeze trains and regular electric train cars are equipped with special scraper shoes to help reduce third rail icing. LIRR deployed extra personnel throughout the railroad to keep the system up and running and to inform customers of our winter storm service schedule.
