Metro-North: Hudson, Harlem, New Haven lines to run on Saturday schedule until further notice
Metro-North Railroad announced that it is operating on a Saturday schedule on the Hudson, Harlem and New Haven Lines until further notice.
Metro-North says the amended schedule provides all-day service for health care workers, first responders and essential employees who are on the front lines of the coronavirus crisis, from early in the morning until after midnight.
It said the schedule has additional trains in the morning and afternoon peak periods, and hourly service during off-peak midday and evening periods.
During this special schedule, off-peak fares will be in effect.
Metro-North says the reduction in service follows a significant drop in ridership in response to federal, state and local health precautionary directives against COVID-19. The measure is also being taken to protect the health and safety of customers and employees.
On weekends, there will be no train or bus service between Wassaic and Southeast.
Starting April 4, on weekends until further notice there will be an hourly service on every line.
The previously publicized March 29 schedule change will not go into effect until further notice.
The north end entrances of Grand Central Terminal are closed until further notice. Other areas of the terminal may be closed temporarily on a periodic basis to accommodate COVID-19 precautions.
All ticket offices are temporarily closed for coronavirus precautions. Customers can use cash, credit debit and contactless cards at ticket vending machines to make their ticket purchases. Customers can also download the MTA eTix electronic ticketing app that works directly from a smartphone.
