Metro-North Will Resume Limited Hourly Service at 6 p.m. until 11 p.m.; Staten Island Railway Service Fully Restored; Express Subway Service in New York City Starts 7 a.m. Wednesday

Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced that MTA above-ground subway and limited Metro-North service will be restored on Tuesday evening at 6 p.m. At this time, Staten Island Railway service has been fully restored and express subway service will begin Wednesday by 7 a.m. or earlier on all lines.

Metro-North will resume limited hourly service starting at 6 p.m. tonight until 11 p.m. on the Hudson, Harlem and New Haven Lines, although there will be no branch service. The Hudson branch will run to Croton-Harmon only; the Harlem line runs to North White Plains; and the New Haven line ends at Union Station tonight. Full service will resume Wednesday morning per the regular weekday schedule and all customers will be served within five minutes of their normal departure time.

The Long Island Rail Road continues to operate a normal schedule with scattered delays. New York City bus service will begin running normally on Wednesday at 5 a.m. and the Access-a-Ride paratransit service has already started taking reservations for tomorrow’s commute.

“As the severity of weather conditions decrease, we are restoring MTA above-ground subway and limited Metro North service so New Yorkers can resume their routines,” Governor Cuomo said. “The state is responding quickly to changing weather conditions, and we encourage New Yorkers to stay home where possible and continue exercising caution as we ride out the storm.”
