According to the Long Island Railroad's tally, people use its trains to make 220,000 trips each weekday in and out of Penn Station. To alleviate congestion at Penn, the MTA has been working on East Side Access, a system of tunnels and tracks that will connect LIRR’s Main and Port Washington lines in Queens to a brand new East Side station directly underneath Grand Central Terminal.
