LIRR to run on modified weekday schedule Monday

NEW YORK (AP) -- The Long Island Rail Road will be operating on a modified weekday schedule on all branches except the Long Beach branch on Monday.

Trains on the Ronkonkoma branch will not operate east of Ronkonkoma, and trains on the Montauk Branch will not operate east of Speonk.

LIRR is providing hourly train service between Jamaica and Atlantic Terminal/Brooklyn. Customers can walk across Atlantic Avenue to Barclays Center and connect to shuttle buses to midtown Manhattan.

The railroad says off-peak fares will be in effect for Monday and the on board penalty fare will be waived. October monthly tickets will remain valid for travel through Monday.
