South Fork Commuter Connection to Launch March 4

Recommended Posts

http://www.mta.info/press-release/lirr/south-fork-commuter-connection-launch-march-4

 

"Starting on Monday, March 4, the LIRR will add six trains per day east of Speonk, three one-way trips in the mornings and three in the afternoon. Select trains will connect with shuttles at East Hampton, Bridgehampton, Southampton, Amagansett and Montauk that will transport customers to and from selected employment centers and workplaces.

"A joint fare covering trains and shuttles is set at $4.25 one way. Tickets will be available at full-service ticket vending machines, where South Fork Commuter Connection ticket will be listed under “Deals & Getaways.” Customers are encouraged to purchase a return trip ticket in advance.

"Because the trains and connecting services are intended for those looking to travel within the South Fork, the trains will not connect with trains traveling to or from New York City, which makes them unique in the LIRR network."

 

New timetables do not appear to be up yet.

So basically in Southampton Village only, they just replaced the former 10A route. This could work BUT I do see the stops being modified just a bit.

This was a long time coming for the South Fork!

Any word on who is operating the shuttles?

Looks like "Hampton Hopper" is handling the East Hampton, Amagansett and Montauk portion of the shuttle. I've seen this bus before and it would make sense because they are out in Montauk every summer.

It appears they have 3 former school buses, now painted in blue and numbered #1, 2, and 3, along with a cutaway.
