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:

  • Friday - Cannonball East - Penn Station Departure:  The Cannonball will depart from  Penn Station at 4:07 PM , and does  NOT  stop at Jamaica.  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 .

  • Sunday - Cannonball West Service:  On Sundays, the all-new  Cannonball (West)   will leave Montauk at 6:37 PM ,  East Hampton at 7:01 PM, Bridgehampton at 7:10 PM, Southampton at 7:20 PM, Hampton Bays at 7:31 PM and Westhampton at 7:39 PM . The train will then run express to Jamaica, arriving at  9:09 PM  and complete its journey at Penn Station, arriving at  9:31 PM .
