WESTCHESTER COUNTY, N.Y. AND FAIRFIELD COUNTY, CONN. – Nearly two weeks' of frustration among Metro-North New Haven line commuters is scheduled to end Monday morning, Oct. 7.
The Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) announced on Saturday, Oct. 6 that power had been fully restored to the New Haven Line.
“Regular New Haven line service will resume Monday morning, Oct. 7, following successful initial testing of a new electrical substation at Mount Vernon,” the MTA said in its statement.
The line has been hampered for more than a week following a Con Edison Sept. 25 cable failure that cut the electric power on the line . Approximately 125,000 ride on the line, which runs from New Haven, Conn., to Grand Central Terminal in Manhattan, every day.
The MTA has also approved a plan to issue credits to weekly and monthly ticket holders affected by the train service interruption. For details regarding how to obtain those credits, click here .
