LIRR restores weekend electric train service on Long Beach Branch
(Page 3 of 4)

Normal weekend, off peak fares will be charged on the Long Beach Branch on Sunday and regular fares will be in effect on Monday. However, Long Beach customers with a November monthly ticket who may have been displaced by the storm will still be able to use their monthly ticket on all other LIRR branches until December 1.

Regular Weekend and Extra Holiday Weekend Train Service

In addition to the return of normal weekend electric service, the LIRR is also adding extra weekend holiday train service on the Long Beach Branch to make travel to and from New York City more convenient for shopping, dining and entertainment.

Eight extra trains are being added to the weekend schedule; four westbound trains between 9 AM and 1 PM and four eastbound trains between 4 PM and 8 PM. With these additional trains, the LIRR will be providing half-hourly service during this holiday travel time period. The added weekend holiday service will be offered on the weekends through the end of the year.

Weekday Train Service

Because of the capacity reduction in Amtrak?s two East River tunnels, four morning rush hour and four evening rush hour trains on the Long Beach Branch will canceled as detailed below:
