If you are into cars, the New York Auto Show is the place to be. The MTA Long Island Rail Road wants auto enthusiasts to use the LIRR to & from the show. To encourage this, the agency is offering a special ticket page. Here are the details courtesy of a press release sent to me by the agency yesterday:
When heading to the New York Auto Show, MTA Long Island Rail Road customers should leave the driving to us.
See some of the hottest cars & trucks ever displayed under one roof at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center . That means more sneak peeks, more brand new ’10 & ’11 production models, more concept vehicles than ever before, and no salesman hovering over your shoulder! Don’t miss it!
The LIRR discount package includes up to 30% savings on admission and off-peak round trip rail fare. The package cost $25 for adults (zones 1-10) and $34 for adults (zones 12-14) and $4 for children 5-11. Seniors 65-plus should check current regular admission and rail fare and compare with adult package price. Commuters can save $3 off the Auto Show admission by presenting a discount coupon at the Auto Show box office at the time of purchase. Discount coupons are available at the Penn Station ticket office.
LIRR Auto Show package tickets must be purchased in advance at a LIRR ticket office or full service ticket machine. Tickets are good on trains arriving in Penn Station weekdays after 9:30 AM and returning up to 4 AM the following day, or anytime weekends.
Auto Show hours are:
