HICKSVILLE - The Long Island Rail Road has declared the system back in operation following several days of frustrating delays and cancellations in the aftermath of the blizzard.

Trains were almost completely back on track for the evening rush tonight after struggling to keep on time throughout the day; however, bus service is still being provided from Ronkonkoma to Greenport.

The MTA says commuters can also expect normal schedules for the Thursday morning rush. Passengers say the news is a big relief.

LIRR spokesman Joe Calderone says, "We had a plan and we followed it and our passengers were safe and sound throughout the storm, and that was our main goal."
