    You can now buy LIRR tickets online. Download the MTA eTix app. You can put a credit card on file. You just need the security code to purchase. Then activate your ticket when you board the train.

    The lines to buy tickets during rush hours are extremely long. Either plan in advance or be prepared to buy aboard the train for a slight premium (beats missing your train!)

    Use the light green MTA ticket machines to get a $5 MetroCard and a LIRR ticket on exit. Better than being forced to spring for a $25 MetroCard at the other machines if you don't need it!

    Если вы поедете из аэропорта к станции Джамайка, то внимательно смотрите на монитор, так как к одной и той же платформе подходят два разных поезда. Один идет к Джамайке, а другой идет к Ховарду.
