Starting on Monday, Jan.21, the free H shuttle train from Far Rockaway-Mott Ave. to Beach 90th Street will operate Monday to Friday from 4:55 a.m. to 9:25 p.m. so that repairs can be made to restore full service to line in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, the MTA said.

On weekends the H shuttle will run from 4 a.m. to 12 midnight.

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

Free shuttle buses will continue to run non-stop between the Howard Beach A train station and Far Rockaway-Mott Ave. A service operates between 207th Street in Manhattan and both Howard Beach-JFK Airport and Lefferts Boulevard.
