MTA Long Island Rail Road is offering plenty of train service for older “Deadheads” and newer fans of Grateful Dead music who are heading to Dead & Company concerts on Saturday, June 25, and Sunday, June 26. LIRR will add Mets-Willets Point stops on the Port Washington Branch to assist fans before and after the concert.
The concert starts each night at 7:30 p.m. with doors opening to concert-goers at 6 p.m. The LIRR‘s westbound service will begin with the 3:42 p.m. train from Port Washington. Eastbound service will begin with the 3:48 p.m. train from Penn Station. A total of 36 trains will make the Mets-Willets Point stop in each direction and after the concert has ended, trains will continue to stop at Mets-Willets Point until concert-goers have been accommodated.
Customers may view the Dead & Company Concerts at Citi Field Special Timetable here. Those coming from eastern Long Island should consult branch timetables for service to Woodside Station in Queens, where transfers can be made to Port Washington Branch trains on Platform B for service to Mets- Willets Point Station. Please remember to take your train ticket when transferring at Woodside and have it ready for presentation at Mets-Willets Point.
