Late yesterday afternoon, I received word via press release that Long Island Rail Road (LIRR) service on the Oyster Bay Branch will be affected by a scheduled triathlon this Sunday. Here are the complete details:
MTA Long Island Rail Road Oyster Bay Branch service between Locust Valley and Oyster Bay will be affected from 7:30 AM to 11:00 AM this Sunday, August 30 to allow for the running of the Oyster Bay Triathlon. Three trains, one eastbound and two westbound, will be affected by the race.
Customers on the 8:52 AM train from Jamaica due in Oyster Bay at 9:46 AM will transfer to a van at Locust Valley to complete their trips to Oyster Bay. Customers should anticipate 14 minutes additional travel time.
Customers for the 8:20 AM and 10:20 AM trains from Oyster Bay will board vans then transfer to trains at Mineola in order to complete their trips. Customers should anticipate up to 31 minutes additional travel time. Regular service on these two trains will originate from Locust Valley at 8:30 AM and 10:30 AM.
I apologize for not posting this sooner.
