MTA Long Island Rail Road customers can now get train schedules and specific travel plans sent to their cell phones as part of a pilot partnership with CooCoo, the Long Island-based text engine company that provides data via text message for standard text fees.

LIRR Commuters Council speaks up and tells the MTA not to cut our trains!
The MTA is holding their first of several public hearings tonight to let customers voice their opinions on proposed fare hikes and schedule changes. I went out to Mineola to get some LIRR riders opinions on the topic
The East Side Access project will connect the Long Island Rail Roads (LIRR) Main and Port Washington lines in Queens to a new LIRR terminal beneath Grand Central Terminal in Manhattan. The new connection will increase the LIRRs capacity into Manhattan, and dramatically shorten travel time for Long Island and eastern Queens commuters traveling to the east side of Manhattan.
Triple meh. Shorter than the five minutes alloted by the LIRR schedule.
Double Meh. Heading east down Atlantic Avenue.
Love this thing!
