NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) – Metro-North will only be able to accommodate about one-third of the regular ridership on the New Haven line for Thursday’s commute and for the foreseeable future due to a power problem that crippled service on Wednesday, the agency announced.
The commuter rail will offer limited bus and train service for the New Haven line starting on Thursday morning, Metro-North said.
New Haven line tickets will continue to be cross-honored on the Harlem line as a result of the power issue.
