New Haven Line running at 75 percent; Amtrak resumes full service


With crews still working to restore Connecticut’s rail lines Tuesday morning, the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) said Metro-North Railroad would provide 75 percent of its regularly scheduled service between New Haven and Grand Central Terminal.

Metro-North trains will run at about 90 percent of the regularly scheduled service on the New Haven Line between South Norwalk and New York City, and at about 95 percent of the regularly scheduled service from Stamford to New York.

Full service continues on the New Canaan and Danbury branches, while service on the Waterbury line remains suspended. The MTA said substitute bus service would not be available for Waterbury line commuters due to local road conditions.

Delays in clearing local roads have hindered MTA crews, the transit agency said, with crews that would typically be assigned to the Waterbury line busy restoring mainline service.

Amtrak said it would resume normal operations Tuesday on its Northeast Corridor from New York City to Boston, including the full resumption of Acela Express, Northeast Regional and Springfield Shuttle service.

Passengers who had purchased tickets but were unable to or chose not to travel in the blizzard’s aftermath can receive a refund or a voucher for future travel, Amtrak said in an announcement posted on its website Feb. 11.
