Metro North July 4th 2014 Service Plan

Here is the July 4th holiday weekend service plan for the Metro-North:

Get a jump on the Independence Day holiday weekend with 17 extra getaway trains leaving Grand Central Terminal between noon and 4 p.m. on Thursday, July 3.

On Friday, July 4th, Metro-North trains will operate on a Sunday/holiday schedule with extra trains in both directions to get folks to and from the Macy’s Fireworks.

Metro-North even provides extra trains to Rye on the New Haven Line, with shuttle buses to Rye Playland where Westchester County puts on its own spectacular fireworks extravaganza over the Long Island Sound. Come early and enjoy the amusement park. Stay late and see the fireworks, which go off at 9:30 p.m.

After the show, there is additional bus and rail service, with Rye trains making all local stops to Grand Central from 10:00 p.m. and 1:00 a.m. July 5. (Hint: Playland also has fireworks on July 3!) For more information, check out our Playland Getaway package at

There are five Hudson Line getaways, three Harlem Line getaways and nine New Haven Line getaways. Also, there are two extra inbound late PM New Haven Line trains.

After 4 p.m. Thursday, July 3, some trains are being combined and canceled.

All extra and canceled trains are shown in the public timetable.

On Friday, when the financial markets closed, Grand Central North entrances also are closed.

On Sunday, Metro-North will operate on a regular Sunday schedule with one extra inbound and one extra outbound evening New Haven Line train. Extra trains are shown in the timetables.
