Here is the service plan for the Metro-North for the upcoming Labor Day Weekend:
It’s the last big weekend of summer and MTA Metro-North Railroad is ready to take you away with 16 extra getaway trains on the Friday before the Labor Day Weekend.
On Friday, September 2, leaving Grand Central Terminal in the early afternoon, there are four extra trains on the Hudson Line, four extra trains on the Harlem Line and eight extra trains on the New Haven Line.
In the late PM peak, after most people are long gone, nine trains are cancelled.
Saturday and Sunday trains will operate on a regular weekend schedule. Also on Sunday is the Golden Apple Bicycle Tour in Goldens Bridge, NY. Metro-North is suspending its requirement that people have bike permits all day on all Harlem Line trains. The railroad also is waiving its limit on the number of bicycles that can be aboard trains leaving Grand Central between 5:40 AM and 8:46 AM and leaving Goldens Bridge between 12:28 PM and 6:28 PM
On Monday, Metro-North trains will be operating on a holiday schedule.
Also, for folks returning to New York City Monday, there will be three extra inbound trains on the New Haven Line from New Haven arriving in the late afternoon and evening.
All extra trains are shown in the current public timetable.
