Press Release
February 11, 2013
Regular New Haven Line Service is Extended to/from South Norwalk
Limited PM Peak service between South Norwalk and New Haven

MTA Metro-North Railroad's recovery from the Blizzard of 2013 continues this afternoon with the extension of regular PM peak service as far as South Norwalk.

Service between South Norwalk and New Haven will be just over 50% of the regular PM Peak service. And some trains to New Haven with Stamford and South Norwalk stops will not operate during the PM rush. Metro-North will operate 9 of the 17 PM peak trains that normally make stops east of South Norwalk, excluding the Shore Line East trains, which will not operate.

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

Overall ridership was down about 20% this morning and down about 50% on the Outer New Haven Line, between Stamford and New Haven.

There will be full PM Peak service on the New Canaan and Danbury branches, while Waterbury service remains suspended. No substitute bus service is possible due to local road conditions.

In addition, Metro-North is providing regular off-peak service on all lines, both this afternoon and this evening.

Customers should expect possible train cancellations and combinations and continue to check website later today for information on Tuesday's service plan.

Trains may be crowded. Please take care when traveling and allow for additional travel time. Customers should use caution when entering and exiting trains, and on platforms and staircases.
