Rockaway shuttle returns

From the NY Post:

There’s a new subway line in town – the H.

The MTA today announced it's running a free rail service for residents of the Rockaways stranded without a subway since Sandy struck on Oct. 30.

The new line — a throwback of the old Rockaway shuttle, which was dubbed the “H” train — opens tomorrow at 4 am.

The trains will operate every 15 minutes between the Far Rockaway-Mott Avenue station and the Beach 90-Holland station, making all intermediate stops.

Stations west of Beach 90-Holland suffered extensive damage to signal systems and cannot accommodate passenger trains.

From the Far Rockaway stop, riders can switch to the MTA’s free shuttle bus to Howard Beach, where they can connect to the A train.
