You have to change trains at Jamaica unless you get the 5AM train into Penn. The parking is convenient at the stations, but the service on this line is a nightmare. Always packed and always transferring. Many people in the area prefer parking at a friend's house in Manhasset or Great Neck and taking that LIRR line instead.

As for the crowds, delays, etc. much will depend on the start/end time of your commute, weather conditions, etc., why not take the time and consider a test run, generally it will take about an hour into Penn Station...

The Train from Glen Head takes about an hour to get to Penn Station and can be crowded.
However if you live in the 11545 zip code of Brookville the Hicksville train Station may be a better choice.

Best LIRR Train Station on the Island. Never crowded and always available parking.

It is about a 1 hour ride, unless of course there is bad weather or delays. Here is a link to the LIRR Schedule:

The parking is convenient, not many delays and the double deck cars are more comfortable and quiet.
