Metro-North Railroad Service During the Coronavirus Pandemic

Updated May 29, 2020

We’re operating our MTA Essential Service Plan to get essential employees where they need to go. Off-peak fares are in effect for all trains.

Starting Wednesday, May 27, we’re also increasing service on the Hudson, Harlem, and New Haven lines as the region begins re-opening.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo is requiring everyone in New York to wear masks or face coverings when they’re out in public.
