July 3-August 28: Summer Saturdays Are Back

Updated July 22, 2021 11:38 a.m.

In thanks and gratitude to our monthly ticket holders, who have been performing essential work throughout the pandemic, LIRR’s Summer Saturdays program is back!

From July 3 through August 28, LIRR monthly tickets will be honored system-wide on Saturdays, valid for travel to and from all LIRR stations and fare zones. Plus, monthly ticket holders can bring along up to four additional travelers for only $1 per person each way!

Reconnect with family and friends, reacquaint yourself with some of your favorite destinations on Long Island, or explore and discover something new!

Travel Tips/Advisories

  • Make sure you have your valid monthly ticket with you. Summer Saturdays deals are only valid when you have a monthly ticket holder in your group.
  • Buy $1 Family Fare tickets for each additional person traveling with you at a Ticket Machine, Ticket Window, onboard from a Conductor, or on the MTA eTix app.
  • The deal is valid system-wide, with the following exceptions:
    • Montauk Branch: The 7:10 a.m., 8:10 a.m., 10:10 a.m. and 12:10 p.m. trains from Jamaica to Montauk (all stops)
    • Ronkonkoma Branch: The 8:12 a.m. train from Penn Station to Ronkonkoma, and its connecting train to Greenport (all stops)
  • Summer track work may impact service.
