The Long Island Rail Road will restore half-hourly midday service on its Port Washington line next month.

The trains will return to running every 30 minutes on May 14.

The LIRR may be looking to lure back 180,000 former riders.

That's how many it lost when it cut midday half-hourly service on the line in 2010.
