NEW YORK - The Long Island Rail Road anticipates a normal morning commute Wednesday.

With the low snow totals, the LIRR was able to operate on a normal weekday schedule Tuesday. Officials said ridership was much lower because of the weather. There were delays of up to 20 minutes on all branches for most of the day.

Service in the early evening was on or close to schedule.

The storm caused some service suspensions on NICE bus. The N21, N4X and N6X lines were shut down late Tuesday morning. Riders were told to expect delays and detours.

Suffolk transit canceled all service.

Flying in or out of the area was pretty much impossible, with more than 6,700 flights grounded nationwide.

The Port Authority said more than 1,100 flights were canceled at LaGuardia Airport and nearly 800 at John F. Kennedy International Airport. All flights in and out of MacArthur Airport were also grounded.
