Train Service on the Harlem Line is temporarily suspended in both directions while we inspect tracks and switches in the Bronx.
The MTA is urging its customers to stay home today if at all possible.
Metro-North’s Harlem line is delayed, but running again after downed trees put the line out of service this afternoon. Busing is in effect between the Pleasantville and Mount Kisco.
Service on the New Canaan branch is also suspended because of signal problems caused by a downed tree. Busing is in effect at the branch.
WCBS reporter Catherine Cioffi spoke with Metro-North’s Dan Brucker who says the tracks are a mess.
All day trees have been falling on tracks as well as cars, but Brucker says works are busy getting trees off the tracks and clearing for the evening rush.
“We have track workers all over with buzzsaws, cutting up the trees,” he said. “But every time they get one off, another one falls.”
His advice to riders at Grand Central Terminal?
“Be as patient as possible. We’re working as hard as we can to get our trains freed up and running.”
