If the project stays on track, Long Island Rail Road riders will be able to hop on and off their train at Grand Central by December 2022. The project, which costs $10.178 billion, is adding eight tracks and a 350,000 square-foot passenger concourse below Grand Central. Once complete, the MTA says the LIRR access will save thousands of commuters 30-40 minutes of travel time, reduce crowding at Penn Station and provide a quicker route to JFK.
The LIRR will eventually serve an estimated 162,000 riders daily through Grand Central, according to the MTA.
