Schedules Now Available Online and in the TrainTime App
MTA Long Island Rail Road (LIRR) today announced that schedules that take effect Monday, Nov. 13, to better reflect customer travel patterns and demand. The timetables also made small schedule adjustments necessary to support upcoming maintenance trackwork.
The latest timetables follow the railroad’s historic service increase of 41% on Feb. 27 with the opening of full service to Grand Central Madison, which opened new travel options and improvements for tens of thousands of daily LIRR riders, including the ability to connect directly with Metro-North Railroad with one ticket, the Combo Ticket.
Major changes to service are outlined below by branch. All riders should check the TrainTime app for additional minor changes to departure and/or transfer times.
