Snow Storm Shuts Down East-of-Hudson Metro-North Service

West-of-Hudson service is still operating on a weekend schedule.

The Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) announced that East-of-Hudson Metro-North train service will be shut down entirely by noon today, although the MTA originally said that service would be running on a Sunday schedule earlier this morning.

In a statement, MTA President Joseph Giulietti cited “increasing winds and heavy snow accumulations” as the reason for Metro-North’s train service shutting down. NYC subway and Long Island Railroad services have also been cut back.

“Getting customers to their destination safely is our top priority,” said Giulietti, commenting the winds and snow accumulation will make it hard “to keep the third rail clear and power running smoothly for the entire day.”
