LIRR to Cross-Honor MetroCards 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:
- Penn Station
- Atlantic Terminal
- East New York
- Nostrand Avenue
- Flushing-Main Street
- Forest Hills
- Kew Gardens
- Little Neck
- Locust Manor
- Murray Hill
- Queens Village
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 1:19 AM, weekdays, and 1:22 AM, weekends, and the last eastbound train from Atlantic Terminal departs at 1:49 AM., weekdays and weekends.
For More Information: Contact the LIRR’s Customer Service Center by calling 511 or 718-217-LIRR (718-217-5477). Automated schedule information is available 24/7. Agents are available to assist customers daily from 6 AM until 10 PM. To speak with an LIRR employee, say the word “Representative” when the prompts begin.
