EDITOR’S NOTE: Metro-North announced Thursday that they have CANCELLED the plan to replace train cars with buses this weekend.
Starting late Friday night and through Sunday, Dec. 16 to 18, riders on the New Canaan Branch will be taking buses rather than trains, and the buses will be 15 minutes earlier (see the attached schedule). The reason: track work. All four stations on the branch will be affected — Talmadge Hill, New Canaan, Glenbrook and Springdale. Here’s an announcement from Metro-North and bus timetables for the duration:
Substitute bus service will be provided between New Canaan and Stamford stations for select trains on Friday, Dec. 16 through Sunday, Dec. 18, 2016. Service is being changed to accommodate track work. NOTE: Buses to Stamford will operate 15-20 minutes earlier than scheduled trains. Listen for announcements and check local or express bus service to your destination while boarding. See bus schedule below in yellow.
