Long Island Rail Road

The Long Island Rail Road (LIRR) is operated by the Metropolitan Transit Authority (MTA) which is a state agency. The MTA provides a resource of information on their website, but it is not always easy to find information quickly, especially when there are unexpected train delays.

LongIsland.com provides Long Island Rail Road information and news as a courtesy to our site visitors. LIRR news is updated on a continuous basis through feeds from a variety of news and media outlets. Although we are not directly affiliated with the Long Island railroad we have received quite a few emails from people frustrated by the system. Basic information with quick links to the MTA and LIRR schedules is provided below.

The LIRR is completely unreliable, the scheduled times are never to be trusted. Pity goes put to all who have no other choice but to use this service, including myself. Everyday is a new struggle with the LIRR especially on the trains going to Penn Station and back. I rue the day i ever moved to the backward suburban cestpool that is Long Island, the LIRR is just icing on the unappealing cake.
