Public Transportation to Jones Beach?

Jump to last reply

Hello - What's the best way to get to the Jones Beach theater from Manhattan before the summer season? I know I can take a train from Penn Station to the Freeport station, but the buses from there to Jones Beach don't seem to start until Memorial Day weekend.

I'm going to a concert at the Jones Beach theater in May before Memorial Day, and I'll be staying in Manhattan without a car. I thought maybe I'd be able to take the Long Island Railroad to Freeport, then maybe a taxi? I'd also be returning fairly late - will it be easy at that point to get a taxi from the theater back to the train station? Do the trains going back to Manhattan run late on weekends? Would this be dangerous for 2 women alone?

I've looked around at various sites, but didn't find any definitive answers. Anyone have advice? Thanks in advance!
