Metro-North has issued the following release regarding a cut in the winter schedule due to the harsh weather.
New Haven Line Reduced Winter Schedule in Effect Beginning February 7 due to Weather-Related Equipment Shortages
Given the continuing equipment shortages on the New Haven Line and the need to improve reliability of train service, Metro-North has issued a New Haven Line Reduced Winter Schedule, effective February 7 through March 4. This schedule reduces weekday AM and PM peak service by approximately 10 percent.
Also, a Sunday Schedule will be in effect both Saturdays and Sundays beginning February 5.
In developing this reduced schedule, we have taken a number of factors into account, including the number of cars available for service, ridership patterns and our ability to operate the new schedule reliably. (See a message from Metro-North President Howard Permut on this winter's impact on our New Haven Line fleet.) The schedule is available on Metro-North's schedules page (in the interactive schedule and in PDF form), and on Metro-North Train Time . You can also contact our Customer Information Center at 212-532-4900.
We regret any inconvenience you may have experienced as as result of the recent weather-related equipment shortages, and appreciate your patience during what has been a very frustrating period for us all.
