HARTFORD - Gov. Dannel Malloy said Monday that service on Metro-North will likely be fully restored by Oct. 8 at the latest.

During a news conference, the governor said he has been talking with Metro-North officials about possible reimbursements for riders who bought weekly or monthly tickets.

The railroad has had limited service since last week when a circuit failed in New York causing Metro-North to halt trains between Stamford and Grand Central.

Malloy said temporary transformers are being added, and that he has also asked the Department of Transportation and Metro-North for a study on the issue to prevent it from happening again.
