Tuesday’s commute is shaping up to be similar to Monday’s, with few surprise problems along the way—but a handful of planned detours and service changes.
As usual, until further notice due to damage from Hurricane Sandy, Manhattan’s South Ferry station remains closed, and no 1 Trains run between Rector Street and South Ferry. For access to South Ferry, riders can take the R to Whitehall Street or the 4 and 5 to Bowling Green.
A Trains also do not run between Howard Beach-JFK/Broad Channel and the Rockaways. Shuttle buses run nonstop between Howard Beach and Mott Avenue, where riders can then connect to the H Train, which runs between Mott Avenue and Beach 90th Street. H trains depart Mott Avenue from 4 a.m. to midnight every 15 minutes and depart Beach 90th Street from 4:30 a.m. to 12:30 a.m. every 15 minutes. The Q22 Bus will provide service between Beach 90th and Beach 116th Streets.
There may be delays on the Long Island Railroad’s Babylon Line, although the only update currently posted is of a delay from 10 a.m. reporting of equipment problems.
