Nonstop Express Summer Service to the Hamptons

NEW YORK (AP) -

New Yorkers heading to the Hamptons this summer will be able to get there in record time. The MTA is offering nonstop service from Penn Station to Westhampton on summer Friday nights.

The new ride will take only 94 minutes, 37 minutes less than the current service requiring a transfer at Jamaica. Express service will also be available in the opposite direction on Sunday evenings.

Trains will depart from Penn Station at 4:07 p.m. on Fridays and run nonstop to Westhampton. From there, the train will continue eastward, making local stops all the way to Montauk.

On Sunday evening, trains will depart Westhampton at 7:39 p.m. and run express to Jamaica before arriving at Penn Station.

One-way tickets are $27.
