Here comes summer — and with it comes new Metro-North schedules on all three east of Hudson branches, starting Sunday, July 10.
On the Hudson Line, two weekday evening local trains have been split into four trains, meaning faster, less crowded trips. While we continue to work on our tracks and infrastructure, some trains have minor schedule changes of up to 5 minutes and weekend Poughkeepsie service is operating hourly.
We’re also adding additional New Haven Line service, including 6 new express trips for New Haven/Bridgeport customers and expanded weekday service on the Waterbury Branch.
Check to see if your trip has changed in the Trip Planner on our homepage or in the TrainTime app.
See details on the new service by line below:
New Haven Line:
- In the evening, the 5:12 p.m. and 6:19 p.m. trains making all local stops from Harrison to Grand Central have been restored to provide additional service options from Westchester County stations to the Bronx and Manhattan.
- The 8:59 a.m. and 9:24 a.m. trans from Stamford that made all local stops to Grand Central will become limited-stop local trains, reducing their trip time by 7-8 minutes. Two local trains are added between Harrison and Grand Central, with a transfer at Harrison between the limited-stop trains and the local trains.
- Additional service between New Haven and Grand Central, and on the Waterbury Branch.
Hudson Line customers will see two new peak trains in the evening, designed to fill an existing gap in limited-stop service in the Lower Hudson zone, as well as an additional stop at Yankees-E 153rd St station on a northbound rush-hour train. On weekends, six half-hourly trains between Grand Central and Poughkeepsie are suspended until late September to provide track-access time for crucial infrastructure work in the Bronx between Yankees-E 153rd St and Spuyten Duyvil; Grand Central-Poughkeepsie service will continue to operate hourly all day.
- The 7:28 p.m. and 8:32 p.m. trains from Grand Central that made all local stops to Croton-Harmon will become limited-stop local trains, reducing their trip time by 6-8 minutes. Two local trains are added between Grand Central and Greystone, with a transfer at Yonkers between the local stations and the limited-stop trains.
- The 5:20 p.m. train from Grand Central to Croton-Harmon adds a stop at Yankees-E 153rd St at 5:34 p.m. to provide improved service to riders leaving the borough-government and commercial area near the station.
- Six weekend half-hourly trains between Grand Central and Poughkeepsie are suspended until the end of September to provide track-access time for crucial infrastructure work in the Bronx between Yankees-E 153rd St and Spuyten Duyvil stations. Metro-North continues to provide hourly service all day on weekends between Grand Central and Poughkeepsie.
- A new morning reverse-peak express train operates from Grand Central to North White Plains, departing Grand Central at 7:08 a.m., stopping at Harlem/125th Street, White Plains and North White Plains.
