Metro-North's New Timetables Take Effect Monday, June 11th

To accommodate the installation of concrete ties this summer on the Upper Hudson and Outer New Haven lines, a new timetable will be issued on June 11th. Service adjustments will affect reverse-peak, off-peak and weekend service.

Hudson Line

During the reverse peak, off-peak and on weekends, Upper Hudson Line train schedules have been moved up to 19 minutes later, and trains will take an extra 3 to 5 minutes traveling along their route.

In the AM reverse peak, the 8:17 AM train from Grand Central will now leave at 8:20 AM. Also, the 5:33 PM train from Poughkeepsie will no longer stop at Cold Spring and Garrison stations and will now depart Poughkeepsie at 5:36 PM. Instead, the 5 PM train from Poughkeepsie, which will now depart Poughkeepsie at 5:01 PM, will stop at these stations.

New Haven Line

During the off peak and on weekends, the departure times of Outer New Haven Line trains have been adjusted either earlier or later by up to 10 minutes, and trains will take an extra 3-5 minutes traveling along their route.

Harlem Line

In the AM reverse peak, the 8:20 a.m. from Grand Central will now depart at 8:17 AM. This is due to congestion at Mott Haven where all three lines come together.

Also, minor adjustments have been made to some late-night Wassaic shuttles.

All customers should pick up a new timetable at the Grand Central Information Booth or at outlying ticket offices or check the web at www.mta.info to see how these service adjustments may affect their trips.
