            Thank you to SMART and labor for making faster, more reliable, and more frequent @LIRR service a reality for thousands of Long Islanders!
            Third Track for @LIRR is finally completed! 🥳 riders will benefit from faster trips, fewer delays, and more reverse commute opportunities into Long Island. This is one of many projects that make transit the best choice, with more service and reliability 🚉 @GovKathyHochul
            Port Washington riders asked & @LIRR listened! 3 AM and 3 PM express trains to/from Penn will be restored. More good news: @MTA, the community & electeds will work together to find ways to expand yard space & increase service in the future. @AnnaMKaplan @ginasillitti
