  1. One more question...

     

    #5. Is there really a new system map in the works, or is that message on the NICE website just a placebo?

     

    No idea, but here's an unofficial one I'm working on (not done yet, still working out some kinks etc):

    LI Transit map (Nassau Inter-County Express (NICE), Huntington Area Rapid Transit (HART), Suffolk Transit and Long Beach buses, and LIRR trains (Monday-Friday)

    Saturday service:

    LI Transit map (Nassau Inter-County Express (NICE), Huntington Area Rapid Transit (HART), Suffolk Transit and Long Beach buses, and LIRR trains (Saturday)

    Sunday service:

    LI Transit map (Nassau Inter-County Express (NICE), Huntington Area Rapid Transit (HART), Suffolk Transit and Long Beach buses, and LIRR trains (Sunday)

     

    PM me if you notice any errors and I'll fix in the next release. (I already know the 22L isn't on there yet; it will be added)

  2. I'd recommend staying on a NJT train all the way to NY Penn Station. Little bit more expensive ($15) but way easier and probably much faster. Buy before boarding! You'll end up on one side of Penn. Follow signs to the LIRR concourse.

     

    Use this link to find LIRR schedules:

    http://lirr42.mta.info/index.asp

    Read any notices that pop up (if any). I believe they are doing track work near Smithtown and a couple trains are replaced by buses. The page will list any transfers you need to do. If you travel outside of rush hour, odds are very good you will have to change trains somewhere (Jamaica, Hicksville, or Huntington). Pay attention to onboard announcements, especially if you have to change at Jamaica (sometimes you have to change trains by walking through an intermediate train that has doors on both sides open). Buy before boarding! You will get a paper ticket to show on the train. Round trip fares are available. Buy from one of the ticket windows so they can confirm transfer/fare info for you. Avoid the crush of people running for the train when it's posted by waiting in one of the less-congested concourses (if you can see the ticket windows, you're standing in the wrong place). Oh, and watch the gap between the train and the platform, eh?

     

    Enjoy!

  3. Wanted to introduce myself and announce a web site I'm working on, my first related to transit stuff (I used to/still do a NY Roads site):

    http://www.njbusmap.com

    Comments/feedback/corrections are always welcome!!!!!

    I hope someone finds it useful, since NJ Transit never made one. While I'm at it, I'll also give kudos to the guys at http://www.jerseymap.org, who blazed the trail before me. There's probably many more ones out there in areas of the state I haven't covered yet, so if you know of any, please let me know so I can link to them!

     

    thanks-

    Doug
