Metro-North ran a "reduced schedule" for the Hudson, Harlem and New Haven rail lines on Thursday. The plan was to "accommodate 75 percent of normal weekday ridership."
"Some local and express trains will be combined and will make additional stops. Consolidated trains will depart at the later of the two times so no one will 'just miss' the train," Metro-North said in a statement Wednesday.
Workers for Metro-North, as well as hundreds of extra personnel, will be brought in to salt platforms and clear snow as it begins to accumulate.
Officials with Amtrak said that train service operated on a modified schedule Thursday because of Winter Storm Easton.
"Northeast Regional service (Boston - Lynchburg/Newport News/Norfolk), Keystone Service (New York - Harrisburg, PA) and Empire Service (New York - Albany, NY) will all operate at reduced frequencies or modified schedules," the company said in a statement Wednesday.
Officials added that the Amtrak Downeaster (Brunswick, ME - Boston) and the Springfield Shuttle (New Haven, CT - Springfield, MA) were not affected by the storm.
Anyone who has reservations and needs to make changes is required to contact Amtrak officials.
