Good news for A riders in Rockaways and Howard Beach and R riders in Brooklyn: Fares suspended all day Tuesday for Sandy anniversary.
“On the one year anniversary of Superstorm Sandy we want to thank New Yorkers who made it through the storm with both resilience and good spirits,” Governor Cuomo added in a statement. “These free rides are a thank you to the MTA riders in the Rockaways in Queens and those who use the R train in Brooklyn for taking the hardships of the storm in stride and for their understanding in the months since.”
From 12:01 Tuesday morning until 11:59 Tuesday evening, riders entering stations on the R line between Bay Ridge-95th Street and Court Street will not be charged a fare.
Cheers, MTA. Free train rides!
