Penn Station (NYC) to Hofstra via LIRR

Total travel time ranges from 1 hr to 1 hr 46 min. Train to Hempstead unless otherwise noted.

IMPORTANT: For Mineola Trains, you must be in one of the LAST two cars. Descend stairs at the rear (NYC) end of the station and Hofstra and Adelphi buses will be to your right. If you exit near the taxi stand, you are at the wrong end of the station.

For Hempstead trains, be in the front of the train.

On italicized trains, the bus connection takes more than 25 minutes, slower than a fast walk. Walking directions from Hempstead train station (1.7 miles=30 min) : Left out the door on Columbia (1 block), Right on Washtington (2 blocks), Left (west) on Fulton Ave-Hempstead Turnpike.
