Stony Brook is located in Suffolk County, near the Long Island Sound (due north of Ronkonkoma) 55.1* miles away from Penn Station on the Port Jefferson Branch one stop from Port Jefferson (The terminus) in zone 10 (One-way vending machine off peak $8.25). The station is unelectrified but the platform is quite long (about 6 cars) all service is from bi-level diseal hybrids. Service is fairly frequent with trains about every hour anpd a half during normal hours (many more during the Peaks). Most trains require a transfer to electric at Huntington or Hicksville. Some weekday trains run into Jamaica, some rush hour trains are extended to Hunterspoint Avenue. Most trains depart from Platform B (the side not along the station house) for easy connection to SUNY Stony Brook and buses to it.
