Weekday capacity on the Long Island Rail Road will be reduced by about 68%. We'll be running around 500 trains each day, compared to more than 740 trains on a usual weekday.

We’ll have crews and equipment on standby in case we need to supplement service.
Next stop, Willoughby

An executive order by The Governour has ordered all constitution statewide stopped, except "essential" work which includes all transportation and government construction and maintience. For now, all capital work and railroad construction will continue as long as contractors and employees concur.

We’re operating the MTA Essential Service Plan until further notice.
