NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) - After the blizzard of 2010 that caused days of delays for the Long Island Rail Road, a new schedule system has been put in place to make it easier for riders to know what to expect during a storm.

Under the four modified schedules, the LIRR’s┬áSam Zambuto says riders should expect delays of up to 15 minutes.

“They range from a weekday schedule that may have up to 20 cancelled trains in either the morning or evening rush hour. Others levels include a weekend scheduled that is a little more robust than a regular weekend schedule and then are two levels of service where we may have to suspend service on some of the smaller branches,” he said Thursday.

He told WCBS 880 reporter Sophia Hall the goal is to keep operating as long as possible during a storm.

The recovery timetables are all available for you on the LIRR’s website.
