LIRR Service Changes Take Effect

Service changes for the Long Island Rail Road go into effect today. Some trains will have scheduling adjustments, while other lines are canceled altogether. The Atlantic Terminal, Long Beach, Montauk, Far Rockaway, Port Washington, Ronkonkoma, Greenport and West Hempstead lines are all affected by the changes.

The new schedules are part of budget-related cuts approved by the MTA Board in March. MTA officials say the service reductions are part of the effort to close a $900 million budget gap.
