Essential Schedule in Effect/Customers Required to Cover Nose & Mouth

As NYC and Long Island continue to reopen, the LIRR is operating on an expanded Essential Service Plan. About 90% of our regular weekday trains are running. 

While we're running on the Essential Schedule, off peak fares remain in effect on all LIRR trains,including trains operating in traditional peak/rush hour time periods. Please buy tickets before boarding. To minimize contact with crew members, use MTA eTix on smartphones and activate eTix just before boarding.  Ticket machines are available at most stations for cash & credit card purchases.

Remember: If you're using MTA services, you must wear a face covering (mask/bandana/scarf) at the station and for the entire duration of your train ride. If you don't need to travel, or if you're feeling sick, please stay home. Thank you, be safe and welcome back!
