LIRR opens new Atlantic Terminal Pavilion

Posted on January 6, 2010

[IMAGE]LIRR-pavilion-full.jpg[/IMAGE]On Tuesday, the Metropolitan Transportation Authority's (MTA) Long Island Rail Road (LIRR) opened the new, $108 million Atlantic Terminal Pavilion, where LIRR customers can transfer for connections with 10 subway lines.

The three-story limestone, granite and glass structure features a soaring atrium that allows natural light to reach the below ground LIRR concourse and subway station. Two sweeping staircases provide direct access from the street to the concourse below. The Terminal building is linked internally to an office building and retail complex.

"This new terminal means improved interconnectivity between the Long Island Rail Road and New York City Transit's subways and buses — with better information and a more spacious, comfortable and accessible facility," said Jay H. Walder, Chairman/CEO of the MTA.

The new Pavilion includes a new ticket office, public rest rooms, grand stairs, customer waiting area, police and employee facilities, granite floor tiles, Arts for Transit installation, information signage, lighting and a new HVAC system.

The budget for the Atlantic Terminal improvements was $108.1 million with funding provided by the FTA and the MTA Long Island Rail Road Capital Program.

The renewed facility serves approximately 25,500 LIRR customers each day as well as approximately 31,650 NYC Transit subway customers.
