About the venue
Option 1: Take the Long Island Rail Road.
The Belmont Park station is located adjacent to the racetrack and is connected to the grandstand by a pedestrian overpass. The station is accessible via ramps located at the east (south) end of the platform.
The station is not on a regular LIRR branch and is served only by special trains to and from Penn Station and Jamaica. For 2022, trains will only run on Saturdays and some holiday weekends. Download the MTA TrainTime app to view schedules and plan your trip.
The last train will wait for last race of the day to finish before leaving.
Fare: $3.25-$17.75 for most people, depending on your origin station.
If you have a monthly ticket that includes Fare Zone 4, you can use your ticket to travel to the arena via any of the three stations. A special ticket is not required for travel to Belmont Park.
Tickets are available at any ticket machine or ticket office. Look for Belmont Park alongside the other stations – they are no longer listed under "Deals".
Trains will not stop at Elmont-UBS Arena, and buses will not be available from Queens Village for racing events.
Option 2: Take the bus.
- Check service status before you go. Schedules are subject to change. Be sure to check the status of your subway, bus, or rail line before heading out.
- Consider contactless. OMNY, our new contactless payment system, is available in all subway stations and aboard all buses. Learn more about how OMNY works.
