Cancelled Metro North Train Service Frustrates Hudson Valley Commuters
Metro North cancelled train service early Tuesday as a result of of the massive snow storm that hit the northeast. But some Hudson Valley commuters ended up getting stuck in New York City as a result and were frustrated by what they felt was a lack of communication.
@MetroNorth why do you let us go into the city and then leave us stranded?

While the city does’t have the snow totals seen in the Hudson Valley, making a decision on service earlier would have been helpful to commuters.The Metro North Twitter page sent out a notification just before 6 A.M. notifying passengers they’d be on a Sunday schedule. Just three hours later the full cancellation was announced.
Metro North will be operating a Sunday schedule with extra trains as needed until further notice. There will be no Branch Line service.

Hourly service for the Hudson, Harlem and New Haven line has resumed through 11 P.M., with a modified peak scheduled planned for Wednesday morning.
