Long Island Rail Road service was close to normal Monday as the reopened East River tunnels allowed most of its trains to deliver most of its usual morning riders to Penn Station.
The LIRR offered what officials said was 83 percent of its weekday service after two weeks of major disruptions caused by superstorm Sandy. Last week, the LIRR was operating about 45 percent of its usual service.
