This summer, for the first time in history, the Cannonball train will feature non-stop express service to the Hamptons from Penn Station. The first stop will be in Westhampton and will take approximately 94 minutes. Conveniently on Fridays, the Cannonball East will leave Penn Station at 4:07 p.m. and arrive in Westhampton at 5:41 p.m., Southampton at 6:03 p.m., Bridgehampton at 6:13 p.m., East Hampton at 6:25 p.m., and end in Montauk, at 6:48 p.m. This will be much more convenient for people traveling to the Hamptons from the city for the summer weekends.

If you have to return to the city on Sundays, the Cannonball West service departs Montauk at 6:37 p.m., East Hampton at 7:01 p.m., Bridgehampton at 7:10 p.m., Southampton at 7:20 p.m., Hampton Bays at 7:31 p.m. and Westhampton at 7:39 p.m. The train will then run express to Jamaica, arriving at 9:10 p.m. and arrive at Penn Station at 9:33 p.m. Though Hampton Bays is bypassed on the Cannonball East Train, but is luckily included on the Cannonball West service. Amagansett however, is bypassed on both routes.

The new eastbound service will start Friday, May 24, just in time for Memorial Day weekend, and runs through Friday, August 30. The westbound service starts the following week on Monday, May 27, and runs through Labor Day, September 2. There will also be a Cannonball East train on Wednesday, July 3, and a Cannonball West train on Thursday, July 4, perfect to head out to the Hamptons for some 4th of July festivities!

Friday eastbound service is a scam. All they did was switch train from hunterspoint. Plus they in read price to peak. It's all PR bull.

Hampton Luxury Liner
Hampton Luxury Liner was started in 2000 as a more luxurious way to travel from NYC to the Hamptons and back. The clientele quickly grew and over the years Hampton Luxury liner became the preferred method of transportation to the Hamptons and NYC for many living in NYC and the Hamptons that wanted a comfortable and affordable way to travel back and forth. In 2009, HLL was taken over by Classic Coach and things with the liner didnít change to much for years and the owner there changed the buses to Prevost as opposed to Mercedes Setra Top Class Coaches that have always been a signature of the liner.
