Weekend Shuttle Service between Penn Station and Flushing-Main Street
The MTA Long Island Rail Road will be providing shuttle service between Penn Station and Flushing-Main Street Station on the Port Washington Branch for up to five consecutive weekends starting January 12-13 for MTA New York City Transit subway customers affected by the suspension of service on the 7 Line between Flushing-Main Street Station and Woodside-61st Street Station. Regular Port Washington Branch weekend service will be in effect.
LIRR shuttles will operate approximately every fifteen minutes in both directions beginning at 5 AM on Saturday through 1 AM on Sunday, and again at 5 AM on Sunday through 1 AM on Monday on the affected weekends. Shuttle stops will include Penn Station, Woodside and Flushing-Main Street Stations. LIRR and NYC Transit personnel will be on hand at all affected stations to assist transferring customers. There is no charge for the shuttle service.
"The Long Island Rail Road is poised and ready to provide alternative shuttle train service to accommodate 7 Line riders during the upcoming weekends as NYC Transit performs work to modernize its signal system," said LIRR President Helena Williams. "While this service is being provided, we ask our customers to be patient as our trains will be more crowded than normal."
