The low point of summer weekends is almost always the commute out of the city. But for Hamptons-goers, that trip will be a little less painful this summer.
The Long Island Rail Road has just announced a new express train from New York Penn Station to Westhampton, a non-stop ride that takes just 94 minutes.
The train will leave Penn Station Fridays at 4:07, and make stops at Westhampton, Southampton, Bridgehampton, East Hampton, and Montauk. A return service will also be available Sunday afternoons.
It's the first time the train, called Cannonball, will leave from New York City. The one-way fare to the Hamptons is $19.75 off-peak, and $27.00 for peak trains.
From the LIRR, here's the all-new 2013 schedule:

The Cannonball runs non-stop express to Westhampton (94 minutes later) arriving at 5:41 PM , Southampton at 6:03 PM , Bridgehampton at 6:13 PM , East Hampton at 6:25 PM and will complete its journey in Montauk, arriving at 6:48 PM .
