A convenient way to Long Island MacArthur Airport (ISP), located just 1.5 miles away from our Ronkonkoma Station.

Discount package includes one-way rail to/ from Ronkonkoma Station and Village Taxi to/from the airport. Just hand your taxi voucher to a Village Taxi driver. This package is not available at the airport or on-board trains, so purchase the tickets prior to the trip to save money. Tickets are one-way; purchase two in advance for round-trips. Package tickets are available at ticket offices or from gray or blue, "Tickets" machines under "Getaways & Packages". These tickets are good on off-peak and peak trains; customers can save up to $4.50.

Weekday Service 5-7 PM: Due to rush hour service requirements in the opposite direction and our single track limitation, there are no westbound trains on the Ronkonkoma Branch during this period. Customers leaving the airport during this time period may elect to take a Taxi to Sayville Station, and pay the driver. Package tickets should not be purchased for use during this time period.
