Commuter alert: LIRR fare hike set to take effect Sunday 

When it comes commuting, the phrase "on time" is something everyone wants to see and hear. Yet, while most commuters who rely on the Port Washington branch found that their trains were "on time" during the morning rush Monday, that wasn't the case just prior to 5:45 a.m.

And it's all because of a broken rail that shut down service between Great Neck and Port Washington, which forced commuters to be bussed to the station in Great Neck.

At this time, it's not clear what caused the rail to break near the Great Neck LIRR station. But what is known is that the timing of the disruption isn't sitting too well with many commuters.

Some commuters at the Manhasset station say with fares having gone up Sunday, word of another round of service delays makes them frustrated.
