MTA: New Haven branch should be mostly restored tomorrow

MTA officials say trains on Metro-North?s New Haven line should be fully restored tomorrow, apart from the New Canaan branch. However, Governor Dannel Malloy (D-CT)

HARTFORD - MTA officials say trains on Metro-North?s New Haven line should be fully restored tomorrow, apart from the New Canaan branch. However, Governor Dannel Malloy (D-CT) says he believes it is "highly unlikely" regular service will return for tomorrow's commute.

Transit officials say while all service is still suspended this evening, service on the New Haven should be up and running for commuters tomorrow. The New Canaan branch will still remain closed, as power has been knocked out the branch due to a tree falling down on wires.

Malloy says those who rely on the Metro North trains should seek alternative transportation as crews have their work cut out for them in getting the whole system operating regularly again.

Officials also said Connecticut transit buses in Stamford, Hartford, and Waterbury will operate normally tomorrow, with buses in New Haven beginning normal operations at 7 a.m. The Bridgeport-Port Jefferson ferry will also resume its regular schedule tomorrow.
