STATEMENT ON MTA APPROVING LIRR ‘ATLANTIC TICKET’ PILOT PROGRAM
May 23, 2018 – Jamaica, NY – Council Member I. Daneek Miller issued the following statement on today’s MTA Board vote to approve the LIRR ‘Atlantic Ticket’ pilot program that will reduce fares to Atlantic Terminal to $5 for Brooklyn and Queens riders at 10 select stations and provide a bus or subway transfer for an additional $2.75.
“After years of planning, organizing, and campaigning, we are one step closer towards our goal of achieving commuter rail equity for all underserved New Yorkers. The residents of my Southeast Queens district who have long endured prolonged and costly commutes from the far reaches of St. Albans, Queens Village, Locust Manor and Hollis will surely benefit from the reduced fare, faster commute time, and optional subway or bus transfer the ‘Atlantic Ticket’ will offer them. I thank MTA Chair Joe Lhota, LIRR President Phillip Eng, and NYC DOT Commissioner Polly Trottenberg for their support of this program. I especially want to thank the Permanent Citizens Advisory Committee to the MTA for its partnership in advocating for the full ‘Freedom Ticket’ proposal that would also include LIRR rides to Penn Station and provide the same benefits to Metro North riders. Our work continues.”
