LIRR Service Restored Between Jamaica and Penn
Long Island Rail Road train service has been restored following an earlier suspension in both directions between Jamaica and Penn stations due “signal trouble” east of the East River tunnels Monday morning, according to the MTA.
The LIRR alerted riders that service was “temporarily suspended” when the problem arose shortly before 10 a.m., just after the end of the westbound morning rush-hour commute. Several westbound trains were canceled, delayed or rerouted to Brooklyn amid the resulting congestion.
The first eastbound and westbound trains to and from Penn were scheduled to leave shortly after noon.
NYC Transit had been cross-honoring LIRR fares for the E train at Jamaica, Woodside, and Penn Station, the rail road said. The same goes for the 2 and 3 trains at Atlantic Terminal and Penn Station as well as the 7 train at Woodside Station.
