Metro-North Christmas/New Year's Holiday Service (December 24, 2014 – January 2, 2015)
You'll be "laughing all the way" past traffic and tolls when you take Metro-North to get around this holiday season. (And you won't need to wear any "bells" on your "bobtail" either!)
Be sure to look for our special Christmas/New Year's Eve Holiday Timetable (effective December 25-26, and December 31 – January 2) or visit our schedules page.
On Christmas Eve (Wednesday, December 24), we've got early getaway trains departing Grand Central beginning at 1 PM. (Because even Scrooge let his employees leave early on Christmas Eve…) See a current November 9 timetable for train times or visit our schedules page.
On Christmas Day (Thursday, December 25), our Special Holiday Schedule will be in effect featuring hourly service. See our Christmas/New Year's Eve Holiday Timetable or visit our schedules page.
For New Year's Eve (Wednesday, December 31), we will operate a special weekday schedule with:
• Reduced AM peak and PM peak service, to match service and train crew resources with the reduced passenger demand;
• Additional inbound trains in the afternoon/early evening (for those of you preparing to "party hearty" in the city);
• Hourly service outbound after 8 PM (for those who prefer to "party early");
• Our traditional post-midnight outbound service between midnight and 5 AM (for all of you professional party goers).
Please remember that drinking alcohol on Metro-North trains and at our stations is banned from noon New Year's Eve until noon New Year's Day. (Because there comes a time when the party really does have to end…)
On New Year's Day (Thursday, January 1, 2015), we will operate hourly service, with two additional mid-day trains to New Haven to accommodate higher demand between noon and 2 PM.
On Friday, January 2, we will operate a Saturday schedule with additional AM inbound and PM outbound trains.

All of us at Metro-North wish you a safe and happy holiday season.
