The Long Island Rail Road will provide extra train service to Greenport this Memorial Day weekend and is offering a discount for admission to the Tall Ships event with the purchase of a roundtrip ticket, according to an MTA press release.

Although Greenport Village is having a pre-sale for Tall Ship tickets, adult admission will increase from $7 to $15 May 15.

That $15 cost will be reduced to $5 when customers purchase the LIRR Greenport Tall Ships Package, which is good for Saturday and Sunday.

The package will not be sold onboard trains and bicycles will not be permitted on trains to and from Greenport on those days, MTA officials said.

The LIRR will not be able to provide additional service to Greenport or the $10 voucher on Memorial Day due to anticipated heavy travel that day, MTA officials saidHere’s the LIRR train schedule:
