A commuter walks to get on a train at Jamaica Station. Of the 200,000 LIRR riders who pass through the station each day, most only transfer to other trains at the station. About 20,000 begin and end their LIRR trips in the Southeast Queens community. (Sept. 13, 2012) (Credit: Newsday / J. Conrad Williams Jr.)
Train schedules Saturday will be altered between 2:30 a.m. and 9:30 p.m. with some customers required to transfer at Hicksville to complete their trips, according to a Thursday news release from the commuter service.
Here are the scheduled service changes on the Huntington / Port Jefferson line:
Some westbound customers originating at stations Port Jefferson through Syosset, and destined for Westbury and Merillon Avenue, will transfer at Hicksville to continue to their trip.
Customers can call 511, the New York State Travel Information Line (say: Long Island Rail Road) for more information, or visit mta.info/lirr/. Hearing-impaired customers can use their preferred relay service provider for the free 711 relay to reach LIRR at 511.
