LIRR Updates Summer Schedule Based on Customer Needs

Published on : Friday, July 14, 2017

MTA RailAs a result of Amtrak’s emergency repairs at Penn Station, the MTA has implemented a comprehensive transportation plan that provides a variety of transit options for LIRR customers impacted by service disruptions. The plan provides a seat for every customer potentially affected by the summer changes, and includes a wide range of alternative travel options and support services, such as free bus and ferry transport, reduced fares and commercial tolls and free subway transfers at key transfer points for LIRR ticket holders.

 

 

To date most commuters have elected to continue to travel by train on altered routes with expanded capacity. While the MTA is committed to offering commuters a range of options, some adjustments will be made to reflect consumer demand, beginning Thursday, July 13.

 

 

Effective Thursday, July 13, there will no longer be temporary bus service from the following stations:

 

 

 

 

The five alternative Park & Ride facilities wiil remain in place for commuters who opt to travel by bus during the Amtrak related service disruption. Buses will depart every half hour between 6:00 a.m. and 9:00 a.m. in the morning and will drop-off first on the east side at 34th Street and 3rd Avenue, with a second stop on the westside at Penn Station (34th Street between 7th and 8th Avenues).

 

 

In the evening, bus service will return to the Park & Rides every half hour between 3:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. picking up first on the westside at Penn Station (34th Street between 7th and 8th Avenues), with a second pickup on the eastside at 34th Street between Lexington and 3rd Avenues.

 

Service will be along 34th Street only with Grand Central drop off and pick up points no longer in use.
