Subway riders on the A and R lines can ride for free on Tuesday along sections hardest hit by Superstorm Sandy.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced there will be no charge for riders entering stations on the A line between Howard Beach and the Rockaway Peninsula. Riders on the R line between Bay Ridge-95th Street and Court Street also will not be charged a fare.

The free subway rides are in effect only on Tuesday between 12:01 a.m. and 11:59 p.m.

The Montague Tube on the R line was flooded during the storm. It remains closed for repairs.

News for those who live, work and play in Brooklyn and beyond

Residents in the Rockaways in Queens had no subway service for seven months while the A line south of Howard Beach was fortified against future flooding.
