Saying problems on Metro-North are at a crisis point, members of the legislature’s Transportation Committee today called for federal intervention in running the railroad.
“The mounting problems that have plagued the Metro-North Railroad over the course of the last two years have reached a crisis point,” said the letter, signed by the committee leadership. It was addressed to state and federal representatives as well as railroad executives.
“A series of failures arising from mismanagement, negligence, and aged railroad infrastructure have resulted in the injury and death of a number of commuters,” the letter said. “Equipment breakdowns have considerably slowed train traffic or brought it to a halt.
“Rail commuters have reacted to this steadily worsening situation with an outcry for help. The level of frustration and safety concerns on the part of commuters is unprecedented. This has also been accompanied by expressions of concern and alarm from the general public.”
