Just a short time ago, the MTA Metro-North Railroad announced some ticket policy changes due to the Tappan Zee Bridge closure. Here are the details via the press release I received:
Metro-North Railroad today announced that because of this afternoon’s crane accident and closure of the Tappan Zee Bridge, a number of changes to ticketing policies and procedures are being made for the remainder of the day:
• Metro-North’s Haverstraw-Ossining Ferry and Newburgh-Beacon Ferry will honor TAPPAN ZEExpress (TZx) bus tickets. Customers who normally depart from Grand Central Terminal (GCT) to connect to the TZx bus at Tarrytown should consider staying on train to Ossining, where they can connect to the Haverstraw-Ossining Ferry, on should catch an express train to Beacon, where they can connect to the Newburgh-Beacon Ferry. Hudson Line tickets to Tarrytown will be honored for travel at all stations on the Hudson Line, as far as Poughkeepsie.
• NJTRANSIT and Metro-North are cross-honoring Hudson Line tickets on the Pascack Valley Line.
Stay tuned for any further updates regarding the AM commute tomorrow.
