The Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) is highlighting its continuing efforts toward a greener world with a special edition MetroCard asking customers to work together for climate action. A million MetroCards have been issued with a green front face and a green message on the back reminding customers that they are helping to address climate change by taking public transportation and asking how else they can incorporate greener efforts into their everyday lives.
The Long Island Rail Road wants customers to know that a number of changes to little-used ticketing procedures that have faded in popularity are taking effect at the beginning of October. Most of the changes were previously announced when they were approved by the MTA Board in July.
New timetables are coming to Metro-North’s New Haven Line and Harlem Line on Sunday, October 4, and to the Hudson Line on Saturday, October 3. On the New Haven Line, Metro-North is creating a better morning rush hour connection to Greenwich for Shore Line East customers. On the Hudson Line, weekend track work will mean special timetables for seven weekends. Customers on all three lines should look for other, minor scheduling changes.
Starting Sunday, October 4, MTA New York City Transit’s popular MTA Bus Time™ service will offer a new feature that provides time-based bus arrival estimates in addition to distance-based information at any given stop citywide, allowing customers to see when their bus will arrive and to help them plan their trips more efficiently.
