Snow Storm Shuts Down Metro-North Service

Share

The Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) announced that East-of-Hudson Metro-North train service will be shut down entirely by noon today, although the MTA originally said that service would be running on a Sunday schedule earlier this morning.

In a statement, MTA President Joseph Giulietti cited “increasing winds and heavy snow accumulations” as the reason for Metro-North’s train service shutting down. NYC subway and Long Island Railroad services have also been cut back.

“Getting customers to their destination safely is our top priority,” said Giulietti, commenting the winds and snow accumulation will make it hard “to keep the third rail clear and power running smoothly for the entire day.”

Here’s what you can expect for today:

  • The last train on the Hudson Line will depart Croton-Harmon station at 10 a.m.
  • The last train will leave Southeast at 10:12 a.m. and North White Plains at 10:06 a.m on the Harlem Line.
  • On the New Haven Line, the last train will leave Stamford at 10:02 a.m.
  • The last trains out of Grand Central Terminal will be at:
    • 9:43 a.m. to Poughkeepsie and 10:21 a.m. to Croton-Harmon on the Hudson Line
    • 9:52 a.m. to Southeast and 10:25 a.m. to North White Plains on the Harlem Line
    • 10:36 a.m. to Stamford on the New Haven Line
  • Long Island Rail Road continues to operate a reduced morning service. 
  • Above-ground service on the subway continues to be suspended.
