Go Yankees, Go Metro-North!
Metro-North is gearing up to hit another home run with special Yankees “Train to the Game” game-day service starting on Monday, April1!
The season opener will pit the Yankees against arch rival Boston Red Sox at Yankee Stadium—and what better way for fans to get there than by taking our convenient, fast and comfortable game-day service to our Yankees-E. 153rd Street Station?
The five-year-old Yankees-E. 153rd Street Station is nestled within the Yankees Heritage Field complex inside Macombs Dam Park, right across 161st Street from the new Yankee Stadium.
That means getting off the train and heading to the stadium is literally a walk in the park.
The new Yankees station is on the Hudson Line; however, game-day service is offered on the Harlem and New Haven Lines as well! All weekend and weeknight games are served by special “Yankee Clipper” trains that offer direct service to the stadium from as far away as Poughkeepsie, Southeast and New Haven. Schedules are tailored to provide service before, during and after the game, from well before the first pitch to well after the last out.
For weekday afternoon games, including the home opener, there is extra service on the Hudson Line. Fans from the New Haven and Harlem Lines can use regularly scheduled trains and transfer at Harlem-125th Street for the short shuttle ride to the stadium.
In addition, we operate shuttle trains to Grand Central and Harlem-125th Street before, during and after all games. The shuttle trains ensure service every 20 minutes on average, beginning two hours before the game starts and ending two hours after it concludes.
All the details are listed in a special Yankees Game-Day Service timetable and on our website (mta.info/mnr).
So, if you’re not a Yankees fan, switch teams and come on over to take this winning game-day service now!
