Governor Cuomo announced Friday that A train riders in the Rockaways and Howard Beach will ride for free all day on the anniversary of Sandy this Tuesday.
R train riders in Brooklyn also won’t need to pay October 29.
“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,” said Cuomo.
According to the governor, there will be no charge for MTA riders entering stations on the A line between Howard Beach and the Rockaway Peninsula, and stations on the R line between Bay Ridge-95th Street and Court Street from 12:01 a.m. to 11:59 p.m. Tuesday.
