Monday marks big changes for LIRR
Long Island commuters will see massive changes to the Long Island Rail Road beginning Monday.
New schedules and other changes were implemented in an effort to close the MTA's $400 million budget deficit.
Among other changes, the MTA cut two cars from all rush hour trains on several branches. They also closed several ticket agent positions, forcing many passengers to purchase tickets at the machines.
Nearly every branch will be affected by the cuts.
