Metro North resumes trains to NYC from Mt Kisco to Grand Central -FREE

By
Home Builder with The Flooring Girl

Beginning, Thursday November 1, 2012, Metro North is resuming trains to the City for the Harlem line from Mt Kisco into the Grand Central and the New Haven line from Stamford to Grand Central.  The Hudson line remains suspended until further notice due to extensive storm damage.

 

Fares will be free for this Thursday and Friday.

 

They are trying to prevent people from driving in the City, and would try to avoid it by all means given all the reports on the radio - it was complete gridlock yesterday and most traffic lights are still out.  Right now, by order of the Mayor, only high occupancy vehicles of 3 or more are allowed in cars.  Most people from Westchester take the trains anyway, and I would highly encourage this mode of transportation.  Let's allow them to clear the roads and

 

I would allow extra time - both for the drive to the station (there are still a lot of trees on the road, and many traffic lights are out of service, and several lanes and roads closed) and the service on the train is a bit limited (and it might be a bit crowded with fewer trains and I'm sure they are going slower).

 

Here are links to the train schedules:

Harlem line

New Haven line

 

While the Hudson line remains closed, they will be accepting tickets from here on the other lines.  I'm assuming they are referring to next week when fares will resume (vs. this week it's free).  Metro North ticket holders should remain onto their October passes and weekly passes as these will be honored through Monday, November 5th.

 

Here is a link to the MTA official site where you can get full info on all lines and up to date info as time progresses.  Fares are also waived within the city for buses and the subway.

 

Stay safe out there, and hoping that things get back to normal soon.

Hi Debbie,

Very good to see you are O.K., I had sent you a message on Linkedin last night asking if you and your loved ones were O.K.

Better listen to the authorities as they have a lot of power when in a crisis like this.

Did you have much damage to your home?

So many Questions to ask, fill us in here in the Rain.

All my best, Clint McKie

Clint - I was lucky.  Every thing is okay where I am. That is not the case when you move about 1/2 a mile a way as well as most other parts of the County.  Many are still without power.  Thankfully, most have water.

Debbie: This is very good consumer information as many will be wondering the quickest/easiest way to get into the city over the next couple of days.
