Service had been suspended at 5:54 p.m., according to MTA spokesman Aaron Donovan. The suspension, due to a signal problem, had rerouted riders to the subway system.

During the suspension, New York City Transit was accepting LIRR fares on the 2 and 3 subway lines between Penn Station and Atlantic terminal and the A/C subway trains between Nostrand Avenue and Penn in both directions, as well as the E subway train between Penn and Jamaica, the railroad said.
