Get out of town this fall with Autumn Weekends

Monthly LIRR and Metro-North ticket holders may travel to all stations and fare zones on weekends from September 11 to November 21.

As a thank you to our customers — and to get those who've been missing the trains back on board — Long Island Rail Road and Metro-North Railroad are offering plenty of deals and discounts for riders this fall. 

Building off the Summer Saturdays program, the railroads are jointly announcing the start of Autumn Weekends, which provides riders an affordable way to get out of the house, out of their cars, and onto the train for weekend trips.

From September 11 to November 21, monthly LIRR and Metro-North tickets will be honored system-wide on weekends, valid for travel to all stations and fare zones. Monthly ticket holders will also be able to bring four additional riders with them for only $1 per person. 

Note: Tickets will not be cross-honored between the railroads; LIRR customers cannot use their monthly tickets to travel on Metro-North, and vice versa. 

Off-peak fares remain in effect on LIRR and Metro-North through December 31. Customers using single-ride trips and 10-trip tickets can benefit from savings up to 28% and 39%, respectively, depending on distance traveled.
