Last New Haven Line trains

Inbound: 9:46 AM from New Haven; 10:02 a.m. from Stamford

Outbound: 10:02 to New Haven; 10:36 a.m. to Stamford

This suspension is necessary to ensure the safety of our customers and to enable us to resume service once the worst of the blizzard passes.


Commuters traveling on New York City Transit, Long Island Rail Road and Metro-North are encouraged to stay home, if possible, as additional service changes are expected. New Yorkers should exercise caution, avoid unnecessary travel and pay close attention to winter storm advisories as the day progresses.

In order to enhance our communications with customers, MTA has taken steps to ensure its communications systems function well during any type of emergency.  The current website design allows for the quick posting of service information and includes a special weather page that becomes the homepage during weather-related events affecting operations.  Customers are urged to monitor this website regularly as well as television and radio reports for service updates.

MTA customers can get up-to-the-minute service updates through the service status box on the alert home page. Customers can also sign up for service email and text alerts by visiting Useful Links on the alert home page.

Editor’s note: Information on Harlem Line and Hudson Line trains and other information not about the New Haven Line is in the original announcement but was removed in this version. We’ve also rearranged paragraphs to put the New Haven Line information up top.
