The Metropolitan Transportation Authority says it expects to run modified service today on its subways, buses and commuter rail lines as it digs out of the latest snowstorm to wallop the New York metropolitan area.

The MTA says the Long Island Rail Road will run on a weekend schedule. Metro-North Railroad will operate 80 to 85 percent of its normal weekday service with some trains combined and some delays possible based on conditions.

The New York City subway system expects to run close to normal service.
