Metro-North New Haven Line service ‘close to normal’ Friday

Gov. Dannel P. Malloy announced Thursday night that service on the New Haven Line from New Haven to Grand Central Terminal will be “close to normal” starting Friday morning.

Fares will be waived Friday.

The New Canaan, Waterbury and Danbury branch lines remain suspended. Malloy said those lines will be back operational as soon as possible.

Malloy said in a news release:

“Given the damage and disruption we sustained up and down the line as result of this storm, a return to full main line service in a matter of a few days is remarkable.

Metro-North workers were deployed immediately and have been working around the clock to return us to 100 percent service on the line between New Haven and New York. This is great news for commuters, our state and Connecticut’s economy. I thank everyone involved for their tireless efforts and commitment to customer service.”
