Starting Monday, April 13, Metro-North will operate on an hourly schedule on the Hudson, Harlem and New Haven Lines on both weekdays and weekends.
The new, temporary schedule is in response to a reduction in ridership of more than 95 percent as customers in the region have honored stay-at-home orders as a precaution against COVID-19.
We would like to remind customers that trains are running for healthcare workers, first responders and essential personnel only. If you don't absolutely need to be traveling, please stay home.
The service modification also includes the following changes:
On the Harlem Line, trains will operate every two hours on weekdays between Southeast and Wassaic; there is no service between Southeast and Wassaic on weekends.
Trains will operate hourly on the New Canaan Branch and every three hours on the Danbury branch daily, and on the Waterbury branch there will be busing approximately every three hours daily, see details http://web.mta.info/mnr/pdf/03-29-20_WaterburyBusing_v3.pdf.
