Metro-North says: “By national industry standard, a commuter train is considered On Time if it arrives at its final destination within 5 minutes and 59 seconds of its scheduled arrival time.”

OK. Then some trains like the 8:10 out of Stamford to GTC is running 7 minutes late. And the 8:19 to GCT is 6 minutes late.

There are also some delays on CT-bound trains from GCT.

The Danbury line, where bus service was substituted last night, is now back to train service. Buses were used because of a fire near the tracks in Bethel.

But, 0ne Danbury line rider tweeted at 6:50 a.m. trains are running late.
