Metro-North Service Advisory: Minor Weekday Schedule Changes to Select Eastbound Pascack Valley and Port Jervis Line Trains Take Effect on Sunday, September 9
Schedule Change in Effect to Support Positive Train Control Installation

MTA Metro-North Railroad advises customers that beginning Sunday, September 9, there will be minor eastbound-only weekday schedule changes to connecting trains between Secaucus Junction and New York Penn Station for Pascack Valley and Port Jervis Line service.
