Metro-North Announces Holiday Rail Service

December 23, 2016

trainMetro-North has announced train schedules for the upcoming Holiday Weekend.

You might want to take advantage of the Getaway Service on Friday, December 23 with extra trains departing Grand Central beginning at 1:00 p.m. Because of reduced ridership, some evening trains may be cancelled or combined.

On Saturday, December 24 Metro-North will operate a regular Saturday schedule.

On Sunday, December 25, Metro-North will operate a regular Sunday schedule.

And since Christmas falls on a Sunday this year, many businesses will observe the holiday on Monday, December 26. On that day, Metro-North will operate a Saturday schedule with additional Shoppers’ Specials trains.

If you are traveling with family and friends, Metro-North suggests purchasing an off-peak ten-trip ticket. In addition to the discounted price, it is transferable, so everyone riding with you can use it. Metro-North recommends using MTA eTix ®, the mobile ticketing app that enables you to purchase passes on your smartphone or mobile device.
