Is New York City Public Transit Running after Hurricane Irene?
NYC Subway, Train Schedules for August 29, 2011: Post-Hurricane Irene
In the aftermath of Hurricane Irene, New York City has to get back to work. SO, are the subways, buses, and trains running? Yes. You have to go back to work.
- MTA: Subways are back but on a limited schedule. You'll be waiting on the platform for the G Train even longer than usual. Also, rumors that the subway is free today are false. You have to pay regular fares.
- Buses are on a regular schedule, though they'll be avoiding any flooded streets.
- LIRR (Long Island Light Railroad): Service is suspended to and from Oyster Bay, Port Jefferson, Long Beach, Far Rockaway, Montauk (east of Babylon), Greenport (east of Ronkonkoma). Trains will be running in a limited capacity on other lines; the Port Washington branch is only running trains west of Great Neck.
- Metro North: trains are not running at all.
- PATH trains are back to normal.
- Amtrak: Amtrak service in the Northeast is heavily disrupted. Check the Amtrak's Hurricane Irene update page for details regarding your rout.
Are NYC Airports Open?
JFK and Newark (EWR) are open for arrivals; departures begin at noon. LaGuardia (LGA) is fully open.
90,000 NYC-area customers are still without power, more than half of them in Westchester County. You can check the Con Edison outage map, but if you're reading this on a PC, then you're not affected.
