Malloy Announces Metro-North Power Improvements

Gov. Dannel P. Malloy today announced a $10 million upgrade to the power supply for Metro-North Railroad’s New Haven Line beginning Monday that he said will prevent the type of catastrophic power failure that occurred this past fall in Mount Vernon, N.Y., seriously disrupting railroad service.

Malloy also announced his plans to meet face-to-face with the incoming president of Metro-North, Joe Giulietti, and Thomas F. Prendergast, chairman and CEO of the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA), Metro-North’s parent agency, on Feb. 13 to discuss his concerns about the operation of the New Haven Line.

“The New Haven Line is the busiest single rail line in the country and, each day, takes more than 60,000 travelers off of our already congested highways,” said Malloy at a news conference at Union Station in New Haven.

“In anticipation of adding even more service on this state owned rail corridor, we want to ensure riders have as safe and reliable a commute as possible and prevent the major system interruptions that we experienced in September.”
