LIRR service is suspended in both directions on due to a train striking a vehicle on the tracks east of Deer Park early Tuesday. Customers are advised to utilize other LIRR branches, including the Huntington/Port Jefferson branch and the Babylon Branch.
LIRR trains normally scheduled to depart from Farmingdale and Bethpage are not canceled, just trains originating east of that. Check the MTA website for a full list of schedule changes.
Morning rush hour Huntington trains and Montauk trains traveling on the Main Line will make added stops at Hicksville to accommodate Ronkonkoma Branch customers. Buses have been ordered to transport customers to Hicksville.
The MTA is warning Babylon line commuters to expect crowded trains with the added Ronkonkoma branch customers.
