Metro-North's New Year's Eve Holiday Service (Dec. 28 - Jan. 1)
Ring in the New Year with us! Whether you are heading to Times Square or spending a quiet evening with friends, we've got plenty of extra service to get you to and from your holiday celebrations.
On Friday, December 28, we will operate a regular weekday morning rush hour and additional mid-day trains on all lines.

On New Year's Eve, Monday, December 31, we will operate a reduced weekday schedule in the morning and evening rush hours.
Whether you are putting on your top hat, tails, or evening gown (or all three) for a sophisticated evening out, or just throwing on some sweat pants and a parka and heading to Times Square to watch the ball drop, our New Year's Eve Service, is for you!
We will operate a reduced weekday schedule in the morning and evening rush hours. The schedule includes extra inbound late afternoon and early evening service to get you to your party. And there is "overnight" New Year's morning service that will get you safely home when that party is finally over!
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 is over.)
Your first resolution for the New Year should be to buy your tickets in advance: Those of you taking our early morning New Year service will have your tickets collected prior to boarding trains at Grand Central. We suggest you use MTA eTix®, the mobile ticketing app that enables you to purchase those ten-trip, one way, round trip, weekly and monthly passes on your smartphone or mobile device.
Finally, on New Year's Day, Tuesday, January 1, 2019 we will operate hourly service on most line segments, and regular weekend service on branch lines.
All of us at Metro-North wish you a safe and happy New Year!
