MINEOLA - The MTA announced today that Long Island Rail Road commuters are getting more time to use their tickets or request refunds, but a $10 processing fee will continue to accompany all refunded tickets.The MTA says unused tickets will be valid for two months. Currently, tickets are valid for two weeks. The timeline to request refunds for unused tickets has also been extended: riders will have two months to request refunds, instead of the current one-month deadline. The railroad has long charged a $10 processing fee to refund tickets, and that fee isn't changing. Some commuters who spoke to News 12 Long Island were angry about having to fork over money just to get their money back for a trip they never took. The changes will take effect in September.
