Metro-North To Restore Express Waterbury-Stamford Service

NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) _ Metro-North has agreed to restore express service from Waterbury to Stamford a month after eliminating the daily train.

Gov. Dannel P. Malloy made the announcement in New Haven Thursday.

The 5:46 a.m. train was the only train on the Waterbury spur of the commuter railroad that ran to Stamford.  Other trains terminate in Bridgeport.

Waterbury Mayor Neil O’Leary tells the Republican-American the service restoration came at the request of city officials and state and federal lawmakers.

Metro-North had ended the service on May 11 when it added a Stamford-bound train from Danbury.  The moves were part of an effort by the railroad to streamline service in Connecticut.
