Metro-North has announced train service will be reduced on the New Haven Line and other lines Wednesday afternoon and evening. Here's the announcement:

For the PM Peak, Metro-North Will Operate Reduced Service on All Three Lines; Hourly Service After 9 PM; Regular Service Planned for Thursday, Feb. 6.

For the PM Peak, Wed., Feb. 5, Metro-North will operate with some local and express trains that serve adjacent stations, being combined and making additional stops.

This service plan represents 75 percent of our regular service and is based on lower ridership counts and our continuing efforts to protect our equipment due to the impact of the winter storm.

The combined trains were chosen to minimize customer impacts and to get customers home within 10-15 minutes of their normal time.

After 9 PM tonight, Metro-North will start hourly service on all lines for the duration of the night.

For Thursday, Feb. 6, Metro-North anticipates operating regular service.  

Most of Metro-North's service territory is under a foot of snow and overnight temperatures are expected to be in the single digits.  

Because of the continued extreme winter weather, the railroad may experience weather-related problems. 

Customers should check this website and the news media for updates, listen for station announcements, and sign up for email alerts.

See the interactive schedules page for details on train times or refer to the printed timetables.

Please continue to listen to announcements at your station and on board trains for any service changes.

Also take care when traveling during inclement weather and allow for additional travel time. Use caution when entering and exiting trains, and on platforms
