NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WNTH) – It’s the most wonderful time of the year. Shopping, Sightseeing. Visiting friends and family. And Metro-North wants to keep things merry and bright with a holiday timetable to get you where you need to be.

You can get a jump on the holidays with early afternoon getaway service on Christmas Eve. There will be extra trains departing Grand Central; between noon and 4 p.m. However, on that day, there will be a reduced schedule in the AM peak as well as in the PM peak.

On Christmas Day and New Year’s Day a Sunday schedule will be in effect. On New Year’s Eve, there will be a reduced schedule during the AM peak, special getaway trains in the afternoon, and a reduced PM peak, including hourly outbound service between 8 PM and midnight. For revelers there will be plenty of inbound trains in the afternoon and evening. When it’s finally time to go home, there will be additional outbound service into the wee hours of the morning.

On January 1, New Year’s Day, trains will operate on a Sunday schedule.
