LIRR: No weekend service between Jamaica, Atlantic Terminal

There will be no Long Island Rail Road service this weekend and next weekend between Jamaica, Queens, and Atlantic Terminal in Brooklyn, the railroad said.

NYC Transit will cross-honor LIRR tickets at Jamaica and Atlantic Terminal for connections to the Q subway train, the railroad said.

Westbound riders to Atlantic Terminal should take an LIRR train to Penn Station, walk one block east to 34th Street/Herald Square, and take the Q, N, or R subway lines to Atlantic Terminal, the railroad said.

Eastbound riders can take the Q at Atlantic Terminal to 34th Street/Herald Square and pick up an LIRR train there, the railroad said.

Travelers destined for East New York should walk from the Broadway Junction subway station of the A and C stations, instead of changing to the L line, which will not be operating.

The railroad gave no estimate of any additional travel time. There are eight stations between Atlantic Terminal in Brooklyn and 34th Street/Herald Square in Manhattan.

The shutdown Saturday and Sunday both weekends will allow for the installation of new signals near Atlantic Terminal, the LIRR said.
