Metro-North cancels meeting on track meltdown
Metro-North officials and the state DOT canceled a meeting to discuss April's morning commute meltdown with frustrated commuters Wednesday.
Afternoon and evening storms caused problems on the Harlem line, which forced the meeting to be scrapped.
In April, downed wires along the Metro-North tracks in Greenwich led to hours of delays and frustration for thousands of southwestern Connecticut commuters. Service was completely halted for more than an hour between New Haven and Grand Central.
Jim Cameron, of Metro-North's Commuter Council, says there were extensive problems with communications that day. "We will try to get down to why e-mail alerts being sent to commuters were giving correct information but the information on the platforms was incorrect," Cameron said.
No word on when, or if, the meeting will be rescheduled.
