New parking garage opens at the Mineola train station

Parking just got a little easier in Mineola. A ribbon-cutting ceremony was held Monday for the new Harrison Avenue parking garage at the Mineola train station.
The parking garage is located between Harrison Avenue and First Street.
The president of MTA Construction and Development says the new garage is part of the third track project, which is set to increase 50% capacity on the main line in both directions.
"Here at this location, we had surface parking that was only 100 spaces. Now we have 550 spaces, so it's an increase of almost 450 spaces, and I think it's going to make a real difference for people who want to come downtown to take the train," says Jamie Torres-Springer.
