Hudson Line reopens, operates on reduced service schedule
After several days of major disruptions on Metro-North, the trains are getting closer to running on their normal timeframe.
The Hudson Line has reopened after having suspended service since last Wednesday’s storm damaged infrastructure.
Landslides and downed trees forced the railroad to shut down service. The MTA says it has spent 105 hours restoring slopes and the foundation along the Hudson Line.
Officials say the Hudson Line will operate with reduced service until further notice. Here are some of the changes still in effect:
- Hudson Line trains will operate half-hourly service during peak hours at all stations.
- On the Croton-Harmon line, south trains will run every hour.
- Poughkeepsie trains will also be hourly.
- Northbound express and local tracks are still out of service between Riverdale and Tarrytown.
- There are temporary walkways to get commuters to the platforms where trains are running.
Officials encourage riders to check the train schedule and to see how service changes impact your commute or check the Metro-North Train Time app and the MY MTA app.
Work remains ongoing to bring the Hudson Line back to full service as soon as possible.
