The Connecticut Department of Transportation (DOT) and MTA Metro-North Railroad (MNR) announced today they accepted of the 100th M-8 rail car for service:
This symbolized these organizations’ commitment to improve rail service on the New Haven Line with more and more M-8 rail cars being accepted and placed into regularly scheduled train service. Customers should now be seeing nearly a third of weekday trains and half of the weekend trains operating with the new M-8 cars.
M-8 trains operate during peak and off-peak time periods, weekdays and weekends, between New Haven, Stamford and Grand Central Terminal.
This is an excellent milestone in the effort to provide riders with better comfort and safety as they use our state’s rail system.
