Booze Ban, Extra Trains Planned for St. Patrick’s Day

14 extra trains scheduled for Monday’s parade in NYC.

St. Patrick’s Day parade-goers will have more chances to get to New York City for the big parade as the Long Island Rail Road has added 14 trains to Monday’s schedule.

MTA announced six westbound trains and eight eastbound trains will be added to Monday’s usual schedule for those traveling into the city for the parade.

The green beer will have to wait until you get to the pub, however, as LIRR announced that no alcohol will be allowed on trains, platforms, or at stations from 12:01 a.m. Monday through 5 a.m. Tuesday. MTA Police will confiscate any alcohol seen at those locations.

Check your local station schedule here.

Extra trains will also be added on March 23 for the Montauk St. Patrick’s celebration.

Two extra eastbound trains will depart Jamaica at 7:10 a.m. and 8:10 a.m., as well as one from Babylon at 8:50 a.m. Extra westbound trains will depart Montauk at 1:31 p.m., 3:35 p.m., 5:35 p.m., and 7:33 p.m.

Cops will be stepping up their DWI patrols so have a designated driver or taxi company ready to get you safely home.

what? Are you people serious? My jaw is on the floor reading these hateful, ignorant comments. I'm sure you have no problem showing BOTH of your "disgusting", "miserable" faces at Sunday Mass or are you one of those twice a year Holy Rollers that show up on Easter and Christmas. We were all created by love and you choose to hate. Sad. Judgements are best left to God. Amen.

confucius? confusion, maybe. I will refrain from further response to this post. I refuse to sink to this level and answer to a Higher authority. I will pray for your redemption.
