Service Improved at LIRR North and South Forks

SFCC LogoThanks to the ongoing modernization of the LIRR, service has improved on both the North and South Forks of the Long Island Rail Road.

The new South Fork Commuter Connection (SFCC) is a coordinated rail and bus system created to operate during peak commuting hours to provide workers with a public transportation travel option. The service started on Monday, March 4, 2019: it will operate Monday through Friday year-round, except for major legal holidays and on Fridays during the summer.

The service offers local LIRR trips, stopping in Speonk, Westhampton, Hampton Bays, Southampton, Bridgehampton, East Hampton, Amagansett, and Montauk. Select trains will connect with ‘last-mile’ shuttle bus service to nearby workplaces and employment centers.

On the North Fork, three Farmingdale trains were extended to start out of Ronkonkoma following completion of the Main Line Double Track project. The completion of the project allowed for additional connections with the Greenport Scoot, with two reverse peak trains having additional station stops. On the South Fork, beginning in May 2018, a dual‐mode train was extended to originate from Southampton, instead of Speonk, to give customers a one‐seat ride to Penn Station.
