NEW YORK - Various public transit agencies in the New York City region were still trying to get service restored on Wednesday morning after Tropical Storm Isaias caused widespread damage and service suspensions.
All lines operated by New Jersey Transit were still suspended for the Wednesday morning commute. Officials hoped to resume service on the Northeast Corridor, Raritan Valley, Passaic Vally, Main/Bergen County lines at 10 a.m. on a weekend schedule. A timetable for all other lines was still unknown.
Tickets were being cross honored on NJ Transit busses, private bus lines, light rail lines, and PATH trains.
For Long Island Railroad, service was restored on the Babylon, Long Beach, and Far Rockaway, Port Washington, and West Hempstead lines but officials warned riders to expect delays and cancellations on Wednesday.
On Metro-North the Hudson Line and the Harlem Line, between Mount Kisco and Grand Central Terminal, were running with weekend service.
The New York City subway system had restored service on all lines by Wednesday morning.
