The Metropolitan Transportation Authority has expanded its late-night Long Island Rail Road service to and from the LIRR’s Atlantic Avenue terminal to accommodate the large volume of passengers traveling to and from the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.

A statement issued by the Brooklyn Nets and a posting on the MTA’s website state that the LIRR added four trains both eastbound and westbound from Atlantic Avenue on weeknights and weekends between midnight and 2 a.m.

A Nets spokeswoman said service previously stopped at 11:55 p.m.

The Barclays Center is located at 620 Atlantic Ave., across the street from the terminal.

The MTA website says the trains will be available not only for Nets home games, but to accommodate crowds for concerts, circuses and other sporting events.

The Nets’ schedule is available online at nba.com/nets.

Schedules and information for the Long Island Rail Road and other MTA services are available at mta.info.
