The LIRR trains will still leave from 13-21, and NJT/Amtrak will still share the rest of them. If your planning on seeing commuting numbers increase as well I hope the LIRR has some sort of plan to deal with larger crowds. Those 12 car trains aren't going to cut it if crowds grow by 5% or more.
And not for nothing, but it would be mainly NYC taxpayers paying so that outsiders can have nicer digs (Long Islanders & ppl from New Jersey mainly who ride those trains)
