Open Phones: Metro North New Haven Line Commuters

Friday, September 27, 2013

Diesel powered trains are deployed to take commuters from Stamford, CT, to Grand Central Station (Craig LeMoult)

If you're one of the 125,000 people who rely on the Metro North New Haven line, do you have a good workaround to getting to the city now that a power failure has snarled your commute? And is this SNAFU changing your mind about living in the suburbs in the first place? Or is it changing the way you think about whether you actually need to be physically at work at all?

Hi there,
As a caller said, new trains - nice, but too loud; too many bells and (robotic) announcements. Human voices are welcome. Conductors are nice and often make funny announcements (and not too many!).
CT needs more bus optional commuter transportation, like bus service. I - and, I think, Mother Earth - look fwd to more investment in infrastructure.
Furthermore, perhaps if more companies opened offices in our neighbor state, even paying low NY wages, employees would spend much less in travel. Win / win for sooo many.
All the best and thanks for the wonderful show!

When some politicians call "investment in infrastructure," a code word for "socialism."

You get what you pay for.
