Metro-North's New Haven Line Service Expands Again Tuesday Morning
From New Haven to New York, Service will be 75% of Normal Service Levels

On Tuesday morning, MTA Metro-North Railroad plans to provide 75% of its regularly schedule service from New Haven to New York City, 90% from South Norwalk to New York and 95% from Stamford to New York as crews continue to dig out the east end yards after the Blizzard of 2013.

On the Hudson & Harlem Lines Metro-North continues to operate a regular weekday schedule.

Regular off-peak service is being provided on all three main lines.

Full service also continues on the New Canaan and Danbury branches, while Waterbury service remains suspended. No substitute bus service is possible due to local road conditions.

Snow-bound local roads also are hindering the ability of some train crew members to report to work. So crews who ordinarily would be assigned to the Waterbury are being pressed into service operating mainline trains, which carry far more customers.

Customers should expect possible crowding and should be aware that there may be train cancellations and combinations.

Customers are urged to use caution when entering and exiting trains, and on platforms and staircases and when traveling to and from station, allow for extra travel time.
