A new Metro North timetable goes into effect on Sunday and will include more trains running on the Danbury Branch. Connecticut Commuter Rail Council member Jim Cameron says 6 new weekday trains have been added. That brings the total to 28 weekday trains for Danbury Branch riders. Metro North, for the first time, is also adding a new morning reverse commute train.
Cameron says the new schedule also adjusts the times to several trains, while increasing service during all off-peak time periods.
Department of Transportation Rail Administrator Eugene Colonese says the new schedule provides train service every two hours during the off-peak periods.
State DOT Commissioner James Redeker says the signal system project also included the upgrade and construction of several portions of parallel track, which efficiently allows for more than one train to travel the corridor at a time. More details can be found on the MTA website.
