Dear Editor,

Why didn't introduction of the Long Island Rail Road's "Atlantic Ticket" discount not include Rockaway residents who can access the Far Rockaway LIRR Station?

Reduced fares will be available for those who travel from Atlantic Avenue in Brooklyn to stations in Queens Village, Hollis, St. Albans, Rosedale, Laurelton, Locust Manor, Jamaica, East New York and Nostrand Avenue, but not Far Rockaway.

The idea is to offer residents of underserved neighborhoods options using underutilized LIRR trains.

Why shouldn't Rockaway residents join Queens neighbors in enjoying the same discounts?
