Commuter Group Says Customers Should Be Reimbursed By Railroad For Lack Of Servce After Blizzard
Metro North plans to rseume a regular weekday train schedule Wednesday morning after the blizzard forced changes in train schedules.
The railroad says its new M-8 cars have been functioning well in the snow, as have the oldest, M-2 cars, which have had “critical system” replacements. But about two-thirds of the M-4 and M-6 cars –which have not had the upgrades — are in the shop because of high voltage electrical failures.
The president of the Connecticut Rail Commuter Council, Jim Cameron, says a lot of riders lost out on their weekly or monthly commuter tickets, especially on the branch lines. And he’s calling for some sort of compensation for them.
