MTA Advisory: CityTicket Begins Tomorrow on LIRR And Metro-North

[[Discounted $2.50 Fare Available for All City Weekend Travel]]

Beginning tomorrow the discounted CityTicket fare of $2.50 will be available for Saturday and Sunday travel within the City.

CityTicket gives New Yorkers more choice between subway, bus, or commuter rail lines for weekend travel by providing New Yorkers the option of riding the commuter railroads for a discounted $2.50 one way fare instead of the full off-peak fare.

CityTicket will be available at Metro-North stations including Woodlawn, Riverdale, Spuyten Duyvil, Marble Hill, University Heights, Morris Heights, Williams Bridge, Botanical Garden, Fordham, Tremont, Melrose, 125th Street, and Grand Central Terminal.

On the LIRR CityTicket will be available at Penn Station, Woodside, Forest Hills, Kew Gardens, Flushing-Main Street, Murray Hill, Broadway, Auburndale, Bayside, Douglaston, Little Neck, Jamaica, Hollis, Queens Village, Flatbush, Nostrand Avenue, East New York, St. Albans, Locust Manor, Rosedale and Laurelton.

Over the six-month trial period customers will be surveyed to assess usage, cost, revenue, and impacts on customer service. For more information on the MTA, customers can log on to
