1. Metro-North will operate additional trains on the New Haven Line starting Wednesday, October 2, raising the capacity to 65 percent. This is due to an increase in power capacity to Con Edison's temporary substations, but Metro-North cannot operate full train service at this time. Also because of the reduced train capacity, the MTA is offering a free shuttle bus to the Pelham Bay Park No. 6 subway stop from the Park and Ride lot at Orchard Beach (Pelham Bridge Road/Shore Road and Orchard Beach).
