New trains added to Metro-North designed to get riders in and out of Manhattan quicker
New schedules are now in effect designed to get Metro-North riders in and out of Manhattan faster.
Metro-North is adding three express trains to New York in the morning and three coming back in the evening.
They only stop in New Haven, Bridgeport and Stamford.
The total travel time will be one hour and 39 minutes - the shortest trip in some 10 years.
"It's the ideal state because we're pretty densely packed right now and there's only so much roads and bridges you can expand. So what we got to do is get more people out of cars and into rail. And more frequent, faster rail service is what Metro-North is all about," said Gov. Ned Lamont.
Another three late-morning and mid-day roundtrips have also been restored, and service on the Waterbury branch has been increased by nearly 50%.
