LIRR ticket office hours

The Seaford ticket office has been closed for about a year.
In addition, effective July 20, 2011, Massapequa and Wantagh ticket offices are open only on Mondays and Wednesdays. What follows is from Train Talk of the LIRR.

Some Ticket Window Hour Changes in Effect July 20
Labor Agreement Helps Retain Ticket Offices

As of July 20 ticket office hours at seven LIRR stations will be revised as follows:

Station Open (Effective July 20) Hours
Amityville Mondays & Thursdays only 6:10 AM-1:45 PM
Bayside Monday-Friday only 6:10 AM-1:45 PM
Flushing-Main Street Mondays & Fridays only 6:15 AM-1:55 PM
Long Beach Monday-Friday
Saturday & Sunday
6:10 AM-1:45 PM
10 AM-6 PM
Lynbrook Mondays & Thursdays only 5:45 AM-1:45 PM
Massapequa Mondays & Wednesdays only 6:10 AM-1:45 PM
Wantagh Mondays & Wednesdays only 6:10 AM-1:45 PM

Ticket office hours will change or be reduced at seven LIRR stations as part of an effort to prevent some ticket windows from closing and to retain the current level of cleaning services. LIRR management and leaders of the LIRR’s Transportation Communications Union agreed to temporary changes in contract rules, providing savings sufficient to avert the planned layoff of 17 ticket clerks, closure of ticket offices and a reduction of ticket window hours at over 18 stations. The LIRR hopes to discuss extension of this temporary nine-month agreement to avoid shutting ticket windows and laying off employees in 2012. The revised ticket office hours at seven LIRR stations take effect July 20, as shown in the above chart.
