Good way to travel on Long Island
Aug. 2021
Very good rides on the LIRR out to a museum on the island. But I have to take away a circle as real-time information on the trip back to Manhattan was less than adequate, the stations need awnings or protections from rain + sun; & it would be nice to have a snack bar or something like that on the train.

I did appreciate having restrooms on the trip very much. Also being able to pay my fare via an app. Sure wish the subway fare could be paid the same way.

Easy Ride Home
Jun. 2021 • Business
I took the LIRR from Woodside home in the afternoon. Quick ride to Jamaica with a seamless transfer to an express train towards Patchogue. Both trains were clean. I love the double decker train. It's a more comfortable ride.

OK transit
Jul. 2020
Well what do you expect it's New York. The tickets are a little more on the expensive side. Or if you are using the subway in NYC you have a transit card and the prices are cheaper (2-5 dollars). So the trains are clean, not trashy. The stations are good but if you are afraid of heights that might be a problem. The Freeport, Bellmore, Merrick, Wantagh stations and more are elevated a good 25-30 feet of the ground. Trains come around every 15-30 minutes depends on what time of day. But still it is ok transit.

Late Morning Meeting
Apr. 2021 • Business
Any time I had a meeting in the city, I've been driving in and parking. This morning, I woke up tired and decided to take the train. Smooth ride and quick with a seamless transfer at Babylon station. Trains were clean and conductors were friendly.

Time saver !

The train was recently free to certain stops with a metro card due to the E train being under construction. This saved me so much time and money.

The LIRR is very fast and convenient, it is the only way to get from Long Island to NYC buy tickets in advance before boarding

The Saturday Night Drunk Train
Dec. 2019
Let me tell you... the Saturday Night Drunk Train (actually Sunday morning 3am) is an adventure. You are going to see things you can't unsee. You will meet a wide range of colorful characters. It is absolutely safe and everyone for the most part is very friendly. I have taken the train from Ronkonkoma to Penn Station and then the return trip. The train was very crowded both ways but I would recommend it.

Good service--on time most of the time

Love the Jamaica station---this is the connection hub--since every train stops at this station--its easy to get to any destination that the LIRR travels to.
