NEW HAVEN, CT (AP) -

If you're planning on going to New York City to ring in the new year, there will be more trains to choose from, but you'll have to be on your best behavior.

Metro-North will start offering extra trains on Friday afternoon, but the railroad is curbing the use of alcohol.

Drinking booze aboard the trains is banned from New Year's Eve at noon until noon the next day.

The railroad will be running extra trains going into the city on Dec. 31.

According to its website, the final train leaving Grand Central for New Haven after the big celebration is 1:47 a.m.

Metro-North recommends buying your tickets in advance of your trip.
