Bedford Commuters: Prepare For New Train Schedule On Harlem Line | Bedford Hills Real Estate

A new Metro-North train schedule goes into effect for all Harlem and Hudson Line customers on Monday, Aug. 19 so that track repairs can expand and continue on the Bronx Right-of-Way Improvement Project, the railroad announced.

The new schedule includes changes on all three New Haven, Harlem and Hudson Line trains. On the Harlem Line, the 8:03 a.m. local train from Mount Vernon West to Grand Central will be restored.  The New Haven Line’s 7:35 a.m. train from Port Chester to Grand Central will also be restored, as well as the 8:30 a.m. train from New Rochelle to Grand Central. This schedule will remain in effect through the fall until the Bronx-Right-of-Way Improvement Project is completed. The schedules for trains on the Hudson, Harlem and New Haven Lines will be adjusted between two and ten minutes to more accurately reflect travel times, the release said. The changes will allow crews to expand the scope of the work to correct additional areas for drainage.  “Further inspections, aided by the use of new technology such as ground penetrating radar, have indicated additional areas not visible at the surface where drainage needs to be improved,” a press release said. Metro-North said it is working to improve the reliability of its service and to address delays.  The railroad said the new schedule changes are necessary to restore the three trains that were cancelled on July 1. Track work for the Bronx Right-of-Way Improvements Program, which began July 1, is being conducted to about 6 miles of track in the Bronx, used by the New Haven Line and the Harlem Line in the Bronx. Additionally, schedule changes include special shuttle bus service to and from Tremont and Melrose stations. Customers may take buses to Fordham for train service. Buses will operate on a half-hourly basis during peak periods on weekdays, and hourly during off-peak periods and weekends.
