Subways, buses expected normal for Monday a.m. rushBy
For subway and New York City bus riders, everything should run smoothly on Monday morning, the MTA announced Sunday night. After a February storm dumped nearly a foot of snow on the five borough, Transit expects a normal commute come the rush hour. Subway lines that were running local instead of express will be restored to express service, and the longer, articulated buses will be back in service.
Some railroad passengers, though, will be less lucky. Nine of 11 LIRR routes will run “near-normal” Monday service. The Ronkonkoma Branch, however, will not run east of Ronkonkoma, and the Montauk Branch will not run east of Speonk. For Metro-North, the Hudson and Harlem Lines will operate normally, as will the New Haven Line between Stamford and Grand Central. North of Stamford, though, Metro-North will run around half of its normal Monday rush service. Trains will run on the Danbury and New Canaan branches but not on the Waterbury branch.
