Stamford, CT | Added on August 18, 2013 At 03:41 PM

Commuters on the New Haven line should prepare for a new train schedule starting Monday, August 19, 2013.

According to the MTA, the new train schedule goes into effect for all New Haven Line customers on Monday so that track repairs can expand and continue on the Bronx Right-of-Way Improvement Project.

Most train times on the New Haven Line have changed by only a few minutes but some trains during morning and evening peak hours have been removed or changed significantly.  Commuters should refer to the new schedule to be prepared.  Detailed schedules are available at: http://www.mta.info/mnr/html/planning/schedules/schedules.htm

Schedules on the Harlem and Hudson Lines are also impacted beginning August 19.

The schedule will remain in effect through the fall until the Bronx-Right-of-Way Improvement Project is completed. According to a press release, the schedules for trains on the Hudson, Harlem and New Haven Lines will be adjusted between two and 10 minutes to more accurately reflect travel times.

According to the MTA, the schedule changes are neccessary to "Expand the scope of work to correct additional areas of inadequate drainage. Further inspections, aided by the use of new technology such as ground penetrating radar, have indicated additional areas not visible at the surface where drainage needs to be improved." The release goes on to say the changes are neccessary to "Improve our service reliability and address the delays you have been experiencing."
