The Metropolitan Transportation Authority is about to speed up a trip to the Hamptons this summer.

For the first time ever, the Friday "Cannonball" express train service will run nonstop from Penn Station to Westhampton on Fridays this summer.

In the past, the express service started at Hunterspoint Avenue in Long Island City, meaning passengers coming from Penn Station had to intercept the train in Queens.

The "Cannonball" train will leave Penn at 4:07 p.m. on Fridays.

The express train will also run back into the city Sunday evenings.
