Special LIRR train right to track. Future plans of a new MTA LIRR Elmont train station will be located between the Queens Village and Bellerose stations on the LIRR's Main Line, just east of the Cross Island Parkway. Electric shuttle buses which are already planned to run from parking lots within Belmont Park to the arena site - will also serve LIRR riders traveling to the grandstand and planned arena, hotel and retail village. The new Elmont station will provide direct service in the future to Belmont Park from both the east and west, as opposed to the LIRR spur, which can only provide westbound service.
