Metro-North riders fed up with suspensions, delays after morning commute interrupted
STAMFORD - Some Metro-North commuters say they are fed up after service was suspended because of wires on the tracks in Cos Cob this morning.
No trains were able to travel between Stamford and Harrison, New York for two hours. Officials say that they had no choice but to shut down four tracks when a worker accidentally damaged some overhead wires.
Sen. Richard Blumenthal and other leaders addressed the issue at a news conference Friday morning, vowing to make things better for those who ride the rails.
