Since Hurricane Sandy, subway service has been non-existent in the Rockaways. Before the storm, riders would typically travel the bridge over Jamaica Bay, but have been unable to since it’s been completely wiped out. The MTA says they will not be restoring service to and from the Rockaways for at least a month, so they are setting up a shuttle-train which will bring riders to a shuttle-bus they can take into the city. The shuttle will run every 15 minutes, with service from the Far Rockaway-Mott Ave station to the Beach 90- Holland station. To get the trains up and running, the MTA is lifting subway cars onto flatbeds and released this awesome footage of the move in action! You can also check out some photos from the moves on the MTA Flickr.
