August 1-2: Westbound Trains To Bypass Kew Gardens & Forest Hills Stations

Woodside Station: Use First Two Cars to Enter/Exit Train

On the weekend of August 1-2, westbound trains will bypass Kew Gardens and Forest Hills Stations. At Woodside Station, temporary platforms will be in effect for westbound trains (except Port Washington Branch trains), and customers should be prepared to use the first two cars to enter/exit the train. In addition, some late Friday evening trains will be impacted by this track maintenance work.

As an alternative, NYC Transit will cross-honor LIRR tickets for Kew Gardens and Forest Hills customers. To have your ticket cross-honored, please use the main subway entrance, closest to the staffed station booth. See below for details.
