Ride with your fellow soccer fans on the Long Island Rail Road, which is running six extra trains to Penn Station tomorrow timed to get you to the start of the parade, and 10 extra trains to get you home.

LIRR customers are reminded to purchase round trip tickets including MetroCards for connecting subway and bus service in advance in order to save time and avoid lines at LIRR & New York City Transit station booths and MetroCard vending machines.

Whether you choose to take a special train to Penn Station, or any of the hundreds of regularly scheduled LIRR trains to New York City, the parade is just a short subway ride away from Penn Station or Atlantic Terminal in Downtown Brooklyn. From Penn Station, catch a downtown 1 to South Ferry or the 2 or 3 to Fulton St or Wall St. From Atlantic Terminal, catch a Manhattan-bound subway. Ride the 2 or 3 to Fulton St or Wall St, the 4 or 5 to Brooklyn Bridge-City Hall, or the R to Rector St or Cortlandt St.
