The Metropolitan Transit Authority(MTA) Long Island Rail Road (LIRR) will operate full morning and evening rush hour service beginning Monday, December 10, as a result of Amtrak restoring the signal system capacity in one of its two flood-damaged East River tunnels. This will mark the first full service rush hour for the LIRR since Hurricane Sandy hit six weeks ago. The LIRR's off-peak service continues to operate on a regular schedule throughout the LIRR system.
