Frequently Asked Questions

What is Metro-North?

MTA Metro-North Railroad is the second-largest commuter line in the United States, providing more than 240,000 customer trips each weekday and some 71,800,000 trips per year.  A subsidiary of the MTA (Metropolitan Transportation Authority), Metro-North was founded in 1983, when the MTA assumed control of Conrail commuter operations in New York and Connecticut. Metro-North traces its antecedents back to the New York & Harlem Railroad, which began in 1832 as a horse-car line in lower Manhattan. It currently has a fleet of better than 950 cars and engines, 384 route miles, and 775 miles of track.

Where does Metro-North go?

Metro-North goes to 119 stations distributed in seven counties in New York–Dutchess, Putnam, Westchester, Bronx, New York (Manhattan), Rockland, and Orange–and two counties in Connecticut–New Haven and Fairfield.  Three main lines–the Hudson, the Harlem, and the New Haven — operate out of Grand Central Terminal in New York City, and two lines west of the Hudson River–the Port Jervis and the Pascack Valley lines–operate out of New Jersey Transit’s terminal in Hoboken, N.J. The Hudson Line extends 74 miles from Grand Central Terminal to Poughkeepsie; the Harlem, 82 miles to Wassaic; and the New Haven, which also has three branch lines–the New Canaan, Danbury, and Waterbury–72 miles to New Haven. The Port Jervis Line runs 95 miles from Hoboken to Port Jervis, with 30 of those miles in New Jersey; the Pascack Valley Line extends 31 miles from Hoboken to Spring Valley, 25 of those miles being in New Jersey.

Where can I buy a ticket?

For service east of the Hudson River (the Hudson, the Harlem, and the New Haven lines) tickets are available at Grand Central Terminal and many intermediate stations, and may also be obtained from convenient ticket vending machines (TVMs) in Grand Central and at certain outlying stations. Tickets are also available through WebTicket. For service west of the Hudson (Port Jervis and Pascack Valley lines), tickets may be obtained at New Jersey Transit’s Hoboken Terminal.  One-way tickets may be bought aboard trains on all lines, sometimes with a service charge. Tickets may be paid for with cash or, at stations, with checks (the latter requiring personal identification, preferably a driver’s license).

What times do trains run?

Service intervals (time between trains) vary significantly according to destination and time. In very general terms, peak- period trains east of the Hudson River (the Hudson, the Harlem, and the New Haven lines) run every 20-30 minutes; off-peak, 30-60 minutes; and weekends, hourly.

Can I bring my pet?

Large pets, other than seeing-eye dogs, are not allowed; small pets are permitted if restrained or confined.
