Most of New York City’s subway lines remained disrupted on Friday morning, although there were signs of improvement, two days after the remnants of Hurricane Ida barreled through the region, bringing torrential rains and deadly flooding.
As of Friday morning, a majority of the lines were back in service but with delays. (Check the latest service updates here.)
The Metropolitan Transportation Authority has been conducting round-the-clock repairs to get the nation’s largest subway system fully running again after the storm damaged tracks and turned platforms and stairwells into water slides.
“We’ve managed to restore a ton of service today but our tracks in Queens suffered the most damage,” the M.T.A. said on Twitter on Thursday night.
Amtrak said it would resume service along the Northeast Corridor, between Washington and Boston, on Friday, but it said trains between Albany and New York City would remain canceled.
New Jersey Transit said all train lines except Montclair-Boonton, Gladstone, Pascack Valley and Raritan Valley would operate on a regular weekday schedule on Friday. Bus service was running on a weekday schedule, but with some delays and detours.
The Long Island Rail Road resumed full service on most branches by Thursday afternoon, with some disruptions spilling into Friday morning. Some lines on the Metro-North Railroad planned to have “enhanced weekend service” on Friday, but others remained disrupted.
Flights on Friday morning out of La Guardia Airport, Kennedy International Airport and Newark Liberty International Airport largely appeared to be on time with minimal delays.
