Repairs along 30 miles of power, communication and signal lines damaged years ago by Superstorm Sandy have forced Metro-North Railroad officials to make a number of service changes that are likely to last up to six months, according to FIOS 1 News.
The changes, which began Monday, mean that express trains will only run along the Hudson Line during peak hours, according to FIOS 1, which reported that the changes specifically affect customers in Scarborough and Philipse Manor, areas that no longer have express service.
To compensate for the changes, Metro-North plans to run bus service between Tarrytown and Ossining, according to FIOS 1.
Transit officials urge Scarborough and Philipse Manor customers to leave about 20 extra minutes for the added travel time, according to FIOS 1.
