LIRR/MNRR Commuter Discounts NYC

Recommended Posts

Honestly, I'm not convinced that 10% will cut it, especially for Metro-North...

It won't work, only Nassau residents will take advantage of it. Used to do the n24 to Queens Village and then LIRR to Atlantic.

2021 Metro-North: This program is a resounding success, we have added an additional train per hour between Mount Vernon West and GCT (Harlem Line) and between Greystone and GCT (Hudson Line).

2021 NYCT: In order to better reflect weekend ridership patterns, (1) trains will operate every 16 minutes between 242 St and 137 St, (2) and (D) trains will operate every 12 minutes between the Bronx and Brooklyn, and (4) trains will operate every 16 minutes between Woodlawn and 125 St.

2021 MTA Bus: In order to better reflect weekend ridership patterns, Sunday BxM1, BxM2, BxM3, and BxM4 service will be discontinued.

Would've been better if LIRR/Metro North fares were cut to $2.75 within City Boundaries. 

No......just make the City Ticket available for $5, that's the best way to do it IMO.

This explains why Nassau County has been tearing itself apart over the past two months. The LIRR has been handing out Discount Fares to the City and Nassau Residents cannot do the old Park and Ride at any of the Queens stop. The truth is that a lot of newer residents are more budget savvy and merely by Off Peak Fares or travel during Off Peak Hours. It's been the Weekly and Monthly Riders who go to Hicksville and Mineola, or the Babylon Line at Rockville Centre, and East of Freeport screaming their heads off. The South Shore West of the Meadowbrook is use the train for Brooklyn and the Bus to Subway to Manhattan as to save money. For the record, I take the Hempstead Branch and merely rely on the Port Washington Branch. The Main Line is too prone to delays and the Bablyon Branch feels like it's competing with the n4 and n19 for customers. IIRC, the Main Line is losing customers to the n22/24 between Jamaica and Mineola/Roosevelt Field and is only used by n40/41 riders heading South or n23 riders heading North to Roslyn.
