South Fork Commuter Connection (SFCC) Shuttle Information
South Fork Commuter Connection
The South Fork Commuter Connection (SFCC) is a coordinated rail and bus system created to operate during peak commuting hours, in order to provide workers with a public transportation option to travel.
This service starts March 4th, 2019. It will operate Monday through Friday year round, except for major legal holidays and Fridays during the summer.
The service offers local LIRR trips, stopping in Speonk, Westhampton, Hampton Bays, Southampton, Bridgehampton, East Hampton, Amagansett, and Montauk.
Commuters west of the canal are encouraged to park at an LIRR station west of the canal, then ride the train to their destination east of the canal. At the stations east of the canal, ‘Last mile’ shuttle services will bring riders to the Villages, hamlets and employment centers. Late afternoon bus and train services will return riders to their stations of origin.
The LIRR fare is $4.25 each way, which includes the train ride and local ‘last mile’ shuttle services. For complete details please see our FAQ section.

Below is the LIRR service schedule beginning March 4th and operating through May 23rd. (The summer schedule will be posted in early May.)
Trips highlighted in yellow with the SFCC designation will offer connecting ‘last mile’ shuttle services.
