    Long Island Rail Road

    All of the flooding related service-issues on the LIRR have been cleared. However, some changes are being made to rush hour service in anticipation of eastbound NYC Transit customers from the Queens Boulevard subway lines using LIRR service and/or buses. The LIRR will cancel and combine some trains to produce capacity for dedicated shuttle train service stopping at Penn Station, Woodside, Forest Hills, Kew Gardens and Jamaica. While the shuttle service is in place, some trains to Long Island will not make local stops at Woodside, Forest Hills and Kew Gardens. Specific announcements will be made at Penn Station. Additional NYC Transit and LIRR personnel will be assigned to key locations to provide customer assistance.

    Customers at Penn Station will experience numerous track changes and are advised not to descend to the platform until their train has been posted. We expect residual delays throughout the system due to this contingency plan.

    Customers should expect lines and delays. LIRR staff and MTA Police will regulate the flow of customers onto trains, but expect crowding.

    If possible, customers should stagger their work hours to avoid travel at peak times.

    The LIRR will accommodate subway customers with MetroCard.
