N.Y. MTA continues adding service, prepares for Nor'easter

Posted on November 7, 2012

New York Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) rail and subway network coverage continues to improve, as additional service is restored and ongoing repair work continues in the wake of damage caused by Hurricane Sandy. All MTA agencies are also monitoring a Nor’easter storm expected to deliver a wintery mix to the region.

F Line service has been restored to Coney Island — Stillwell Avenue, the first line to return to the terminal since trains were removed in anticipation of Hurricane Sandy. Subway service was also restored on the G Line along the full route from Church Avenue in Brooklyn to Court Square in Queens, but with considerable delays due to ongoing work to repair damaged communications and signal equipment inside the Greenpoint tube under Newtown Creek.

Subway service has been restored to most lines, but work continues to restore full service to lines that are currently offering only partial service. Staten Island Railway (SIR) is operating on a limited, 15 minute schedule and weekday AM express service is suspended as repair work on critical components continues.

MTA Long Island Rail Road will continue to operate a modified schedule due to outages in two of Amtrak’s four East River Tunnels. Service however has been restored between Montauk and Speonk on the Montauk Branch, while bus service is being added between Island Park and Lynbrook, making stops at stations in between and offering rail service at Lynbrook.

MTA Metro-North Railroad is operating regularly scheduled service between Stamford/New Haven and Grand Central Terminal on the New Haven Line. Harlem Line service is operating on a regular schedule between Wassaic/Southeast and Grand Central Terminal, while Hudson Line service is operating regularly between Poughkeepsie, Croton-Harmon and Grand Central Terminal.
