South Fork Commuter Connection
The South Fork Commuter Connection (SFCC) is a coordinated rail and bus system created to operate during peak commuting hours, in order to provide workers with a public transportation option to travel.
This service operates Monday through Friday year round, except for major legal holidays and Fridays during the summer.
The service offers local LIRR trips, stopping in Speonk, Westhampton, Hampton Bays, Southampton Bridgehampton, East Hampton, Amagansett and Montauk.
