Change in Shore Line East Stamford Express Trains
To accommodate the New Haven Line overhead catenary construction project in Bridgeport station, customers riding Shore Line East (SLE) express through trains to and from Stamford and Bridgeport will be required to transfer at New Haven. This change is necessary due to limited track availability during this phase of the catenary project. Metro-North will provide special service trains for the New Haven to Stamford portion of three SLE Stamford express trains.
Effective today, July 2, 2012, SLE customers who travel beyond New Haven to Bridgeport and Stamford please note the following service changes:
The two morning SLE trains that travel through to Bridgeport and Stamford will now connect in New Haven to special Metro-North trains. These special Metro-North trains will make the same express stops to Bridgeport and Stamford.
The 7:02 AM SLE New Haven arrival will now connect to a special Metro-North train departing New Haven at 7:06 AM, Bridgeport at 7:26 AM and arriving in Stamford at 7:54 AM.
The 7:40 AM SLE New Haven arrival will now connect to a special Metro-North train departing New Haven at 7:44 AM, Bridgeport at 8:04 AM and arriving in Stamford at 8:33 AM.
One of the evening SLE trains that travel through from Stamford and Bridgeport will be operated by a special Metro-North train and now connects with an SLE train in New Haven.
The 5:07 PM Stamford departure will be operated by a special Metro-North train departing Bridgeport at 5:33 PM, Stratford at 5:39 PM, Milford at 5:45 PM and arriving in New Haven at 6:01 PM where it will connect with the SLE train departing New Haven at 6:04 PM.
Metro-North will make every effort to provide cross track platform connections at New Haven between the special Metro-North express trains and the SLE trains.
The Department of Transportation will continue to monitor this service change with Metro-North and will revert back to the SLE through service to Stamford and Bridgeport as soon as possible.
Thank you for your patient during the 2012 construction season.
