For up-islanders hoping to go to Montauk for the St. Patrick’s Day Parade, making travel plans just got a little easier. The LIRR has added an additional westbound train, leaving Montauk at 1:23 p.m., two hours after the parade’s scheduled 11:30 a.m. start. The train fills a gap in the westbound weekend schedule between the 6:44 a.m. train and 3:35 p.m. train.

Though no additional eastbound trains were added, the regularly scheduled 7:42 a.m. train from Penn arrives in Montauk at 10:46 a.m., 44 minutes prior to step off. Visit LIRR online for more scheduling info.
