Metro North Providing Weekend Bus Service

After 10 p.m. on Friday, July 8, buses will replace select trains on Metro-North Railroad’s upper Harlem Line at all stations between Wassaic and Southeast. From Saturday, July 9, through 2 a.m., Monday, July 11, substitute bus service will be provided for all trains between Southeast and Wassaic.

This weekend’s service change will help ensure the on-going reliability and safety of Harlem Line trains. Improvements to the upper Harlem Line include: tree trimming, renewing the South Street Pawling grade crossing, surfacing track to prepare for the replacement of two bridges in Patterson later this year and replacing wooden cross beams on the Mountain Brook bridge. On the lower Harlem Line, crews will be making improvements to the drainage system near the Tremont station.
