Beginning tomorrow, the free “H” subway shuttle, which started running in the Rockaway Peninsula  after Sandy damaged the “A” line’s connection to area, will have new hours.

The “H”  line, from Far Rockaway-Mott Avenue to Beach 90th Street, will operate from 4:55 a.m. to 9:25 p.m., Monday to Friday, and from 4 a.m. to midnight on weekends.

From Beach 90th Street to Far Rockaway-Mott Ave, it will run from 5:10 a.m. to 9:40 p.m., Monday to Friday, and from 4:30 a.m. to 12:30 a.m. on weekends.

These changes were made to accommodate ongoing work along the line to restore full subway service in the area.

To connect to the rest of the city’s transit system, riders can still 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.
