Buses Replace New Canaan Trains

The MTA Metro-North Railroad has announced that buses will replace some New Canaan branch trains due to a switch upgrade. Here are the complete details via the press release I received:

MTA Metro-North Railroad announced today that Metro-North crews will upgrade a switch on the New Canaan Branch this Saturday night, March 17.

The switch upgrade will help keep the New Canaan Branch running reliably and safely. To accommodate this work, substitute busing will be provided between New Canaan and Stamford stations after 10: 50 p.m. Regular train service resumes on Sunday with the 6:28 a.m. train from New Canaan and the 6:53 a.m. train from Stamford.

Buses traveling to Stamford will operate 15-20 minutes earlier than scheduled trains. At Stamford station, customers will connect with continuing train service to Grand Central Terminal.

Service details are below:
