Also makes schedule changes for commuters, hikers

Beginning the week of Sunday, April 3, Metro-North will add an additional quiet car to weekday trains, including during non-rush hours. On  inbound trains, the last two cars will be designated quiet cars, and on weekday outbound trains, the first two cars will be designated quiet cars.

In addition, due to the high volume of customers traveling to the Manitou and Breakneck Ridge stations to hike, three additional round trips will make both stops on weekends.

Beginning on Monday, April 4, some morning and evening rush hour trains on the Hudson, Harlem and New Haven lines will be adjusted by between one and four minutes. According to Metro-North, the adjustments will decrease train wait time at stations, relieve congestion, increase train speed and help prevent the cascading impact of minor delays and improve on-time performance.

On the Hudson line, the 5:35 a.m. train from Poughkeepsie to Grand Central Terminal will depart two minutes earlier at 5:33 a.m. The arrival time of the 4:54 p.m. train from Grand Central Terminal to Croton-Harmon will be adjusted one to two minutes later from Morris Heights to Croton-Harmon.
