“LIRR to Test Electric Railcars on Oyster Bay Branch”

“This is another example of the LIRR embracing modern technology to benefit our commuters. This is a potential game changer for our riders in diesel territory, giving them more opportunities for a one seat ride into NYC. It is also particularly fitting to announce this study and the clean air benefits it can bring during Earth Week. It will be good for riders and for the planet.”
