On October 19th & 21st, MTA Metro-North Railroad will be providing bus service for select off-peak Waterbury Branch trains. Here are the details via the press release I received:
MTA Metro-North Railroad will provide substitute bus service for select, off-peak Waterbury Branch trains on Wednesday, October 19 and Friday, October 21.
Southbound buses will operate 15 -30 minutes earlier than scheduled trains. Northbound buses (from Bridgeport to Waterbury) will follow the train schedule, however the trip may take an additional fifteen minutes. Metro-North urges customers to listen for announcements and check local or express bus service to their destination while boarding. Schedule details are below.
The service change will accommodate track work and help ensure the on-going safety and reliability of the Waterbury branch.
Southbound: Wednesday, October 19 and Friday, October 21
Between 11:40 a.m. and 5:30 p.m., buses will replace trains at all Waterbury Branch stations, making all scheduled stops to Bridgeport. At the Bridgeport station, customers will connect with regularly scheduled trains for continued service to Grand Central Terminal. Buses will operate 15 – 30 minutes earlier than scheduled trains. Customers can view bus departure times at this link:
