Malloy: Another Week Before Full Metro North Service Returns

Governor Dannel Malloy says if an additional transformer can be connected to the system that shut down Metro-North trains last week, they might be able to get an additional train on the tracks by tomorrow.  The governor held a briefing Monday  morning following a conference call with Metro-North and Metropolitan Transportation Authority officials.

Malloy  says they are now targeting an October 7th or 8th date for full restoration.

Meanwhile.  Malloy says despite the problems, commuters have handled the inconvenience as best as can be expected,  but he’s advising  those who can to work from home or travel during off-peak hours.

He says he learned in the call that an additional transformer may be connected to the system,  which would allow at least one additional train to be on the tracks at any given time.

The governor is pushing for reimbursements for those passengers who purchase weekly or monthly tickets.
