ThanksgivingGoing home early for the Thanksgiving holiday … or heading into Manhattan for the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade?
The L.I.R.R. is providing extra trains that include Wednesday afternoon’s (November 21) getaway period, when eight extra eastbound holiday eve trains will run from Penn Station, and one will operate out of Hunterspoint Avenue. They include:

  • Three trains to Babylon
  • Two to Huntington
  • One each to Hicksville, Great Neck and Far Rockaway
  • One to Montauk (from Hunterspoint Avenue)

On Thursday morning, November 22, (Thanksgiving Day) we will provide six extra westbound “parade” trains:

  • Two from Wantagh (7:13 AM and 7:43 AM)
  • Two from Ronkonkoma (6:27 AM and 7:10 AM)
  • One from Speonk (6:08 AM)
  • One from Port Jefferson (6:27 AM).

Details are available in your branch timetable.

We also run extra trains back to Long Island after the parade:

  • Three on the Babylon Branch, four on the Ronkonkoma Branch
  • One Port Jefferson
  • One Huntington and
  • One terminating at Speonk.

On the Friday after Thanksgiving, the unofficial kickoff day for holiday shopping, The L.I.R will operate on a regular weekday schedule, but off-peak fares will be in effect all day.
