MetroNorth Adding Weekday, Weekend Trains as Ridership Rises

NBC Universal, Inc.

More trains will be running in the suburbs starting this weekend.

The Metropolitan Transportation Authority says its MetroNorth lines will be back to full, pre-pandemic weekend service beginning Sunday.

Starting Monday, 102 trains will be added each weekday to bring the railroad to 82% of pre-pandemic levels. Ferry service between Haverstraw and Ossining and between Newburgh and Beacon on the Hudson Line also will resume.

The MTA said it is making changes as ridership has risen and schools and offices are reopening after Labor Day. Weekend ridership on MetroNorth is around 50% of pre-pandemic levels.
