HICKSVILLE - The Long Island Rail Road (LIRR) says its service is on or close to schedule today with only minor disruptions.

There is no weekend service on the West Hempstead branch. Alternate train service is available at Hempstead, Lynbrook, or Valley Stream.

It was a different story yesterday, when riders faced widespread cancellations and delays during the evening commute, coupled with confusing announcements.

"You got to cut them some slack," says Adam Schwartz, of East Meadow. "There's no miracle cure for the snow."
