The MTA announced extra train service on all LIRR branches for Friday to usher in the last big weekend of the summer. Extra trains on the Port Jefferson Branch to Hicksville and Huntington include:
- 2:08 p.m. stopping at Jamaica, Mineola, then all stops to Huntington.
- 2:29 p.m. stopping at Forest Hills, Kew Gardens, Jamaica, New Hyde Park, then all stops to Huntington.
- 3:24 p.m. stopping at Jamaica, Mineola, Westbury and Hicksville.
parking has long been a headache for commuters, most of whom do not have the day off on Friday. In May, lot and more than half of the 73 votes said it was just plain terrible.
How will Labor Day weekend travelers affect the parking situation at the Syosset LIRR station? Will increased trains help dillute some of the traffic or will it make parking a bigger nightmare? Will this deter you from parking in the LIRR lot Labor Day weekend?
