New Haven Line runs saved by Connecticut
Three daily New Haven Line runs that were set to be eliminated have been saved by Connecticut, which pitched in $200,000 to keep them running.
Metro-North Railroad plans on eliminating trains across the system as part of the Metropolitan Transportation Authority’s cost-saving service reductions. Connecticut’s new contribution will allow two off-peak afternoon trains and one early morning train to keep running, Metro-North spokeswoman Marjorie Anders said.
Those runs are the 1:34 p.m. and the 2:33 p.m. weekday express trains from Grand Central Terminal to New Haven, and the 1:15 a.m. train that runs every day from Grand Central to Stamford.
Together, they serve about 300 passengers a day on the New York State portion of the line, Anders said
