Talking Transportation: Improvement on Metro-North

By Jim Cameron

Special to WestportNow

I know it may be hard to believe, but I think things are getting better on Metro-North. Image

Last week I finally met Joseph Giulietti, the new president of Metro-North. I found him to be very smart, quite candid and equipped with a reasonable plan to bring this railroad back to its once-deserved world-class status.

On May 11 a new timetable will become effective, aimed at achieving two goals: safety and reliability.The timetable will mean running trains on-time but still allowing for track and catenary work to keep the railroad in a state of good repair. The timetables were announced today.

At a commuter forum in Westport, Giulietti was the first to admit that the railroad was in bad shape, that trains are running slower and later, often with standees. But unlike GM’s chairman explaining delays in safety recalls and blaming it on “the old GM”, Giulietti is taking ownership of the problems. That’s refreshing.
