Metro-North Railroad to increase weekday service beginning March 27
Metro-North Railroad today announced new train schedules taking effect Sunday, March 27, that will increase weekday service on its three East of Hudson lines, including the Harlem line, which services Goldens Bridge, Purdys, Croton Falls, Brewster and Southeast. The restoration of more weekday trains brings the railroad’s weekday service to nearly 90% of its pre-pandemic levels, the Railroad said.

“As more riders return to traditional peak periods, Metro-North is improving the attractiveness of its weekday service,” said Metro-North Railroad President Catherine Rinaldi. “We have been listening to our customers and the message is clear – they want more trains and seating capacity as well as faster trips.”
As ridership recovers from an Omicron-caused dip, Metro-North is restoring many of its pre-pandemic zoned express-service trains. The railroad said that these service adjustments will provide additional seating capacity for customers and reduce trip times at several stations by up to 13 minutes.
Harlem Line weekday service will increase from 190 trains to 208 trains with additional trains between Grand Central Terminal, White Plains and Southeast.
