Subways and buses should be back to normal for the Monday morning rush hour, the Metropolitan Transportation Authority said Sunday night, but some disruptions are planned for riders of the Long Island Rail Road and Metro-North.
On Long Island, where Friday’s blizzard dumped more than two feet of snow, nine of 11 LIRR branches will be running at “near-normal” service, the MTA said. The Ronkonkoma branch will not run east of Ronkonkoma, though buses will be provided to Greenport, and the Montauk branch will not run east of Speonk.
About 10 of the LIRR’s 143 trains will not be running Monday, and passengers can check the status of their trains by looking at Modified Schedule 1 at http://mta.info/lirr/Timetable/Modified.htm.
Snowplows are working overnight to clear snow-filled parking lots, but the MTA said riders should expect parking to be reduced, particularly in Suffolk County, and try to find rides to the stations.
For Metro-North, the Hudson and Harlem lines will be running at normal service. The New Haven branch will provide about half of its regular Monday rush-hour service. There will be service on the Danbury and New Canaan branches, but not the Waterbury branch, the MTA said.
