Since subway cars can’t reach the peninsula by track, the MTA had to truck them to the Rockaway Penninsula to start running the "H" shuttle.

Beginning Tuesday morning, the subway will once again run in the Rockaway Peninsula after Superstorm Sandy damaged the “A” line’s connection to area.

The “H” train, which will operate using a connection not normally used for service called Hammels Wye, will run every 15 minutes between the Far Rockaway-Mott Avenue and Beach 90th Street stations, making intermediate stops.

Trains will operate from 4 a.m. to 12:00 a.m. from Far Rockaway-Mott Avenue and between 4:30 a.m. to 12:30 a.m. from Beach 90th Street.

To connect to the rest of the city’s transit system, riders can take a free shuttle bus from the Far Rockaway-Mott Avenue station to the Howard Beach/JFK Airport stop, where they can get the “A” train.
