Increased Metro-North stops may improve economic development in the Bronx
An increased number of Metro-North stops may improve economic development in the Bronx.
Metro-North added additional trains and stops in the Bronx in October in an attempt to attract more commuters from the northern suburbs to the borough. According to officials, since the increased services, the number of Westchester commuters has jumped.
Metro-North officials say the additional local trains also add more options for Bronx commuters. Officials say before the service changes, commuters could have waited 90 minutes for a local train. Now, Metro-North says those waits are down to 30 minutes.
