LIRR: Service to be completely restored for Thurs. AM rush

BRIDGEPORT - The Long Island Rail Road (LIRR) says that service will be completely restored system-wide in time for Thursday's morning rush.

Officials say service between Ronkonkoma and Greenport will be up and running again, marking the first time since the system was shut down ahead of Hurricane Irene on Saturday that all 11 branches will be operating.

Commuters are being reminded that some stations are still without power and ticket machines may not be working. However, passengers can buy tickets on board at no additional charge.
