NEW YORK CITY — Amtrak will pare down its schedule along the Northeast Corridor Tuesday because of the impending blast of arctic air. Airlines have also changed flight schedules as temperatures drop to dangerous lows tonight.
There will be fewer Acela Express and Northeast Regional trains running between Washington and Boston, according to Amtrak. Empire Line service between New York City and Albany will also be affected. The rail service could not say how many trains would be affected.
Riders whose reservations change will be accommodated on other trains, Amtrak said. Check the status of your train through Amtrak.com, smartphone apps or by calling 1-800-USA-RAIL.
You may request a refund or voucher if you have already purchased a ticket and decide not to travel Tuesday, the rail service added.
Most scheduled subway work will be suspended Monday night through Tuesday with the exception of the R train Montague Tube reconstruction and Pelham 6 line rehabilitation work, an MTA spokesman said.
Included in the changes is the suspension of overnight work on the G line Monday and Tuesday.
Metro-North and Long Island Rail Road service remains unaffected.
New Jersey Transit will allow riders to use their ticket on rail, light rail or bus, including private carriers on Tuesday and Wednesday.
All NJ Transit rail station buildings and waiting rooms will also remain open overnight through Thursday.
