New schedules for the Metro-North’s Hudson & New Haven line go into effect this Monday. Here are the details:
On Monday, November 16, new Metro-North timetables go into effect on the New Haven Line and the Hudson Line. On both lines, trains are returning to normal schedules after construction work has concluded. The timetables will stay in place through April 2. There are no changes to the Harlem Line.
New Haven Line:
Waterbury Branch customers who since May have been changing trains at a temporary platform called the Devon Transfer will no longer transfer there. Starting on Monday, Waterbury Branch trains will resume their usual service pattern with all trains traveling to or from Bridgeport. This previously announced change reflects progress in Metro-North’s project to rehabilitate the Devon Movable Bridge, which carries New Haven Line, Waterbury Branch, Shore Line East and Amtrak trains over the Housatonic River between Stratford and Milford.
There are no changes to the Hudson Line’s weekday trains. On weekends, train schedules return to normal following the completion of a major track switch reconstruction project near the Yankees-E. 153rd Street Station in the Bronx that had resulted in additional transfers and lengthened travel times for some customers. On weekends, the Hudson Line now resumes its usual service pattern with three trains per hour in each direction: an express diesel to/from Poughkeepsie, an electric local making all stops to/from Croton-Harmon, an electric semi-express making select stops to/from Croton-Harmon.
