MTA details LIRR plan for winter nor'easter
The MTA released a detailed snow contingency plan for the LIRR Tuesday before a massive storm is set to dump more than a foot of snow on the New York area.
From 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Wednesday, more than 12 extra trains will leave Penn Station for Long Island to get commuters back home early if the snow starts piling up.
For the evening rush, the MTA will cancel or combine more than 20 trains if accumulations surpass 10 inches. Crews will work on clearing the tracks and the MTA will resume service when it?s deemed safe.
Thursday morning passengers could still see reduced service, according to the plan.
