Weekend LIRR Alcohol Ban Starts Friday [POLL]

The railroad says the goal is to control unruly passengers.

The Long Island Rail Road is banning alcohol on weekend trains coming out of Penn Station, starting tonight. 

All trains from midnight to 5 a.m. will be alcohol free. Booze will also be banned on LIRR platforms.

The goal is to reduce the number of disorderly passengers and protect train crews from unruly riders, the LIRR said.
