Metro-North To Resume Partial Service

Hurricane Irene (2011)

Metro-North announced plans to begin operating a Sunday schedule at 2 PM Monday on the Lower Hudson and Lower Harlem Lines. In the aftermath of Hurricane Irene, Metro-North crews continue to work around-the-clock, assess conditions, clear the tracks and repair the infrastructure.

According to the MTA, crews are working around the clock to restore as much service as possible once it is determined that it is safe to do so.

The following service will be in effect:

On the Lower Hudson Line, a regular Sunday Schedule will be in effect to and from Croton-Harmon only beginning with the following trains:

Inbound Departures from Croton-Harmon:

2 PM from Croton-Harmon: All stops to Grand Central.

2:34 PM from Croton-Harmon: Limited stop express to Grand Central.

Outbound Departures from Grand Central:

2:20 PM to Croton-Harmon: All stops to Croton-Harmon.

On the Lower Harlem Line a regular Sunday Schedule will be in effect to and from North White Plains only starting with the following trains.

Inbound departures from North White Plains:

2:01 PM: North White Plains & White Plains, then express to Grand Central

2:08 PM : All stops to Grand Central

Outbound Departures from Grand Central:

2:25 PM: All stops from Fordham to North White Plains

2:48 PM: Express to White Plains/North White Plains

Customers are encouraged to use the MTA's interactive schedules page to view all train times.

New Haven Line, Upper Hudson, Upper Harlem and New Canaan, Danbury and Waterbury Branch Line Services remain suspended. There is still no signal and third-rail power because of downed transmission poles, trees continuing to fall and water-damaged substations. Following all repair efforts, patrols trains have to operate to ensure the safety of the tracks before resuming service.

Port Jervis and Pascack Valley Line service remains suspended today. In particular, water continues to flood sections of the Port Jervis Line making it difficult to assess the full impact of the hurricane to critical infrastructure.

Off-Peak fares will be in effect, and Metro-North will honor West-of-Hudson tickets on the Hudson Line

Overnight, hundreds of Metro-North crews addressed several mudslides and washouts along the Hudson Line, removed numerous fallen trees on all three train lines, pumped water out of key locations, restored signal and power systems, repaired and replaced switch motors. The difficulty of these efforts were compounded by the significant road closures in the territory.
