LIRR To Add Trains For Nets Games

MTA

Long Island Railroad will help the Nets attract fans from east of the city next season by adding trains to its Brooklyn service, MTA officials tell Newsday. MTA Chairman Joseph Lhota said Tuesday the LIRR will be "rearranging" its schedule both for Nets games and other events.The LIRR opened a new terminal (above) near the arena in 2010.

"We need to be prepared at that time for people to come down, fill up the trains, and then pull another train in," he said of peak demand after games. The MTA which also runs the city's subway system has said it will monitor traffic to the games to determine which subway lines will need additional train service. The Nets are hoping that the majority of fans will use mass transit to get to and from games.
