PATCHOGUE, NY - Today, Congressman Lee Zeldin (R, NY-1) and Congressman Andrew Garbarino (R, NY-2) urged the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) and Long Island Rail Road (LIRR) to reverse course on their recent service cuts, which have led to reports of infrequent, overcrowded trains. Following their urging, the MTA announced it would restore previously cut service. 

“The MTA’s decision to reverse course on recent service cuts, which led to infrequent and overcrowded LIRR trains, is great news for riders and workers alike,” said Congressman Zeldin. “New York is entering a critical phase of reopening and revitalizing our local and regional economy, and the MTA plays a vital role in getting us back to our way of life. Ensuring that commuters can return to work safely and efficiently, will help us emerge from the outbreak of coronavirus stronger than ever.”
