The MTA will begin restoration of subway service at 6 a.m. Monday.
Gov. Andrew Cuomo and MTA Chairman Jay Walder announced that limited service on subways, buses and the Staten Island Railway would be running by the morning rush hour with some exceptions.
The Long Island Rail Road announced that it expected a nearly normal morning rush hour service on the Port Washington line and five other branches, but service would still be suspended on the Port Jefferson, Long Beach and Far Rockaway branches.
Metro-North Railroad, where Hurricane Irene caused flooding and mudslides, would remain out of operation for the morning rush.
Walder said service would resume across the subway system but would be less frequent than normal. Riders should expect longer waits and more crowded trains. Frequency of service will improve over the course of the day.
No. 3 trains will operate between 137th Street/City College and New Lots Avenue. Substitute bus service will be provided between Harlem 148th Street and 135th Street connecting with the No. 2 train.
