[ARCHIVED] Smooth Sailing for Launch of South Fork Commuter Connection

SFCC-COLLAGE

Southampton Town Supervisor Jay Schneiderman and Suffolk County Legislator Bridget Fleming were on board the 8:26 am out of Hampton Bays this morning to officially launch the South Fork Commuter Connection.

Despite inclement weather conditions, there were 15 passengers on the first train out of Speonk and a dozen on board the second morning train out of Hampton Bays.  

“I want to thank State Assemblyman Fred Thiele and State Senator Ken LaValle for their strong leadership to make this happen,” said Southampton Town Supervisor Jay Schneiderman.  “This commuter service took years of hard work at the state and local levels to bring on track.”

Ridership is expected to build as the traffic starts to build later this spring on Sunrise Highway and County Road 39.  

When purchasing tickets, passengers should go to the “Deals and Getaways” section to obtain the tickets for both the train and the shuttle bus that picks up passengers at the train stations and drives them to employment destinations such as Town Hall, Stony Brook-Southampton Hospital, schools and downtowns.  For more information go to www.sfccLIRR.com
