The City Terminal Zone is the name given to a collection of rail lines of the Long Island Rail Road in New York City. Specifically, it refers to all stations that lie in fare zone 1 (except for Mets – Willets Point on the Port Washington Branch), which is the set of stations west of Jamaica.

Routes[edit]

There are three routes that are considered part of the City Terminal Zone:

  • ML = Main Line
    • HP = Hunterspoint Avenue - Trains that serve Hunterspoint Avenue and Long Island City in Queens. This route is served only during weekday rush hours in the peak direction (to Long Island City in the morning, from Long Island City in the afternoon).
    • NYP = Trains to Penn Station in Manhattan via the East River Tunnels
  • AT = Atlantic Branch – Trains that terminate at Atlantic Terminal in Brooklyn.

Until November 2012, the City Terminal Zone also included the Lower Montauk Branch from Long Island City to Jamaica. This line served Penny Bridge, Haberman, Fresh Pond, Glendale, and Richmond Hill stations until March 1998.

In the near future, the City Terminal Zone will include a branch to Grand Central Terminal as a part of the East Side Access project. A new station in Sunnyside, Queens will be built once the remainder of the project is complete.
