The increase in trains will bring the MNRR full weekday service (for all three lines) to 82% of the pre-pandemic schedule.
It will also feature a return to full weekend service on all three lines, something to celebrate just in time for weekend excursions and leaf-peeping season.
On the Harlem Line there will be 37 additional trains, with 189 weekday trains;
o There will be 8 additional inbound trains between 5 AM and 9:59 AM
o There will be 6 additional outbound trains between 5 AM and 9:59 AM
o There will be 5 additional outbound trains during the PM peak, (4 PM to 8 PM)
On the Wassaic Branch, direct service to and from Grand Central Terminal resumes with two direct, "one-seat" rides in each direction.
The new schedule includes the Labor Day holiday train service as follows:
On Friday, Sept. 3, a new expanded weekday schedule with additional getaway trains;
On Monday, Sept. 6, they will operate the new expanded Sunday train schedule.
Off-peak fares remain in effect until further notice.
