LIRR to Cross-Honor MetroCards at Key NYC Stations for Customers Affected by Overnight Subway System Closure

Beginning on Wednesday, May 6, and continuing until further notice, NYC Transit subway service will be suspended from 1 AM – 5 AM, daily, to allow for increased cleaning and disinfecting of subway cars and stations.

During this time, the LIRR will accommodate MetroCard holders by providing free train service for travel to/from the following stations, which are either adjacent, or in close proximity to, NYC Transit subway stations.




Subway customers are advised to check the LIRR’s online schedules before traveling as overnight LIRR train service is less frequent than subway service.

Brooklyn customers: under the Essential Service Plan, the last westbound train from Jamaica departs at 1:22 AM, and the last eastbound train from Atlantic Terminal departs at 1:49 AM.
