The Long Island Rail Road (LIRR) serves a total of 124 stations, reaching along North Fork and South Fork as well as branching out to many other parts of the Island. There are a total of 12 branches to the LIRR, each of which run from Pennsylvania Station in Manhattan, serving each of the following destinations: Jamaica Station in Queens; Babylon; Greenport; Far Rockaway; Hempstead; Long Beach; Montauk; Oyster Bay; Port Jefferson; Port Washington; Ronkonkoma; West Hempstead.
One of the best features of the LIRR is that trains in the City Terminal Zone, which is the section between Pennsylvania Station (Manhattan) and Jamaica Station (Queens), run 24-hours a day, 7-days a week. Services to Port Jefferson also run regularly every 60 minutes through the night and those to Port Washington and Ronkonkoma every two hours. Other branches don't run so frequently, but still have regular services throughout the day, 7-days a week, which run from around 7am to 11pm, depending on the destination.
