NEW* New Haven Line TimeTable Effective Monday, July 8, 2019
Our new timetable, effective Monday, July 8, 2019, is designed to reflect more accurately where and when trackwork and infrastructure projects are occurring along the line, resulting in more reliable and dependable service for Metro-North customers.
**PLEASE NOTE: There is a special CTDOT Construction Schedule for the Atlantic Street Bridge replacement in effect from Saturday, June 29 through July 7. Please click on this link to see the special schedule.
On July 8, when the special schedule concludes, minor schedule adjustments will take effect on the New Haven Line. The new schedule is designed to reflect more accurately where and when trackwork and infrastructure projects are occurring along the lines, resulting in more reliable and dependable service for customers.
Metro-North crews will be out in this summer making aggressive infrastructure improvements in the Bronx. The railroad will put its new SMARTRACK program into action, strategically shutting down a continuous segment of track between Woodlawn and Mott Haven so that multiple work groups have uninterrupted access to maintain and enhance the system. Crews will make drainage improvements, replace rail and install new ties.
Harlem and New Haven Line trains operate over the four tracks between Woodlawn and Mott Haven and then merge with the Hudson Line south of this location. While improvements are underway, the availability of only three tracks in this congested area of the Bronx will limit our operating flexibility in the event of an incident affecting service, which may result in delays. In the long term, the SMARTRACK program is critical to improving the condition of our track infrastructure which will improve the reliability of our service and improve your commute.
The New Haven Line, has the greatest number of infrastructure projects and densest volume of trains and shares the trackage between Woodlawn and Mott Haven with the Harlem Line. Therefore, adjustments need to be made to the schedule to maximize reliability of service.
On July 8, the following minor schedule adjustments will be in effect on the New Haven Line to accommodate track work in the Bronx:
- Most trains have the same end-to-end schedule times, with intermediate times adjusted for trackwork projects.
- Most peak-hour trains have minor schedule adjustments of 1-2 minutes.
