Midday Weekday and All Weekend Service Reduced to Every Hour

As new LIRR timetables went into effect on Sept. 13, the MTA announced service cuts to the Port Washington branch. The MTA said that the schedule changes execute the second phase of budget-related cuts in LIRR service that were approved by the MTA Board in March. These service reductions, along with those implemented last May 17, were required as part of the effort to close the MTA’s $900-million budget gap, the MTA said. The service reductions will save approximately $950,000 this year and $3.8-million annually starting in 2011, the MTA states. However, the MTA also stated that the LIRR will be monitoring the schedule changes and will make adjustments, as necessary, based on additional ridership and possible crowding on trains.
