LIRR service will increase dramatically, but at some stations more than others
MANHATTAN, New York (WABC) -- All aboard!
The full Long Island Railroad (LIRR) service to Grand Central Madison will begin on Monday, February 27.
All 11 branches of the LIRR will offer service to Grand Central Madison and Penn Station.
Grand Central Madison opened to the public on January 27, but only offered direct service from Jamaica Station.
In a press release, MTA Chair and CEO Janno Lieber said, "Faster, more convenient travel that brings Long Island closer to the heart of the City - the new schedules are going to be a major shot in the arm for the local economy and the effort to get people back to offices, theaters, and shopping."
