South Fork Commuter Connection
New Schedule Starts September 5, 2023
Train & Shuttle Schedules:
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 travel option. The
The SFCC operates Monday through Friday, except for major legal holidays. The service offers local LIRR trips, stopping in Speonk, Westhampton, Hampton Bays, Southampton, Bridgehampton, East Hampton, Amagansett, and Montauk. Select trains will connect with last-mile shuttle bus service to nearby workplaces and employment centers.
Commuters west of the canal are encouraged to park at an LIRR station west of the canal, then ride the train to their destination east of the canal. At the stations east of the canal, ‘last mile’ shuttle services will bring riders to the villages, hamlets and employment centers. Late afternoon bus and train service will return riders to their stations of origin.
The fare is $3.25 one-way, and includes the train ride and local ‘last-mile’ shuttle services.
