Metro-North adjusts January 7 schedule ahead of expected winter storm
With winter weather expected to bring 3 - 5” of snow to our area before noon Friday, Metro-North Railroad announced that its Friday, January 7 service will operate on a Saturday schedule with additional trains in the morning and evening peaks. Customers should anticipate scattered delays due to the weather, officials warned.
“Metro-North will operate on a modified schedule and monitor conditions for the duration of the snowfall,” said Catherine Rinaldi, President of Metro-North Railroad. “Crews will be deployed before, during and after the storm clearing platforms and stairs and combatting any weather-related challenges.”
The service has implemented weather protocols to prepare for snow, including strategically positioning snow-fighting equipment around the system, taking steps to prevent brake lines from freezing and fitting trains with scraps to clear snow/ice off third rails.
