Poughkeepsie Metro-North Hudson Line
The Poughkeepsie train station is the most northern Metro-North Hudson Line station; or you could say the end of the line in Dutchess County. It is an important transportation hub in the Mid-Hudson Valley region. The Hudson line offers scenic views of the Hudson River and Mountains.
History of Poughkeepsie Station
The present station was opened for business in 1918. It was modeled in some ways after Grand Central Station and is listed on the Registry of Historic Places.
Who uses the Poughkeepsie Stations
Since there are stations to the south of Poughkeepsie, and to the east (the Harlem Valley Line), this station is used by residents of Poughkeepsie ,and those living to the north, who might find the Amtrak service in Rhinebeck too expensive for commuting, and the fact that the trip ends at Grand Central Station instead of at Penn Station.
For any train station parking can be an issue especially for one as busy as Poughkeepsie. Parking at the station is handled by LAZ Parking There are daily meters or you could apply for a permit to get long term parking. Permit parking would be recommended if you plan to commute for work and would offer some savings.
Schedule and Fare
The MTA provides a schedule for the Hudson line, all you need to do is plug in the station you are leaving from, and your destination. During rush hour the train will run every 25 minutes, and hourly at other times. Since the trains also run on the weekends keep in mind that the schedule is different from the weekly schedule.
Besides the metro-north train you can also catch the Amtrak train at the Pougheepsie station.
