I saw on Metro-North's social media pages that on Saturday and Sunday, they ran fall foliage specials on the Hudson Line (4 each day. 2 each way).

Some questions:
-there was no mention of these trains on the mta.info website, so how was ridership?
-did anyone on here ride them?
-would you even feel safe on a train right now? (I'm on the fence)

-if I do take them next weekend (Metro-North said weather permitting), how would parking at Tarrytown be?

sorry for so many questions.

I rode Amtrak a few weeks ago, RHI - BOS in a big loop from RHI-NYP-BOS-ALB-RHI, and felt totally safe the entire time. I'm sure Metro-North's just as safe as Amtrak is, especially with the strict mask policies and decontamination all public transit has in the state. Just wear your mask, keep your distance, and bring some hand sanitizer with you.
