NEW YORK (WABC) — Significant mudslide has disrupted Metro-North and Amtrak service between NYC and Albany.
Metro-North announced Saturday that the Hudson Line service was suspended between Croton-Harmon and Tarrytown because of significant mudslide onto tracks following inclement weather.
Hudson Line service has also been reduced to hourly in both directions between Grand Central and Tarrytown.
Metro-North is working to secure extremely limited buses between Tarrytown and Croton-Harmon, but strongly advise passengers to utilize Bee-line buses to/from the Harlem Line instead.
A schedule for the Bee-line bus can be found here.
The debris from Saturday’s inclement weather also caused Amtrak to temporarily suspend service between Albany (ALB) and New York (NYP) for the remainder of the day.
The suspended lines include the following Empire Service trains: 260, 233, 238, 253, 244, 241, 259, 281, 283, 280, 284.
Amtrak is encouraging customers who have questions about their reservations to call 1-800-USA-RAIL.
New York Gov. Kathy Hochul issued a statement on the matter, ensuring New Yorkers that getting service back on track is top priority.
“At this point, our top priority is to restore service as quickly as possible and we are deeply grateful to the hard-working MTA personnel and emergency responders who are working to keep commuters, motorists and all New Yorkers safe,” she shared.
Gov. Hochul also noted that there have been no reports of individuals injured or stranded in the impacted areas.
