South Fork Commuter Connection

The South Fork Commuter Connection (SFCC) is a coordinated rail and bus system created to operate during peak commuting hours in order to provide workers with a public transportation travel option.

This service started on Monday, March 4, 2019. It will operate Monday through Friday year-round, except for major legal holidays and except on Fridays during the summer.

The service offers local LIRR trips, stopping in Speonk, Westhampton, Hampton Bays, Southampton, Bridgehampton, East Hampton, Amagansett, and Montauk. Select trains will connect with ‘last-mile’ shuttle bus service to nearby workplaces and employment centers.

The schedule below will be in effect from January 6 – March 8, 2020.
