It's later than you think

Recommended Posts

The clocks advanced one hour to Eastern Daylight Time (EDT) at 2AM. Suddenly, every train was behind schedule. Trains scheduled to leave terminals after 2 AM would now leave a hour earlier. How does the MTA deal with the situation? Do crews continue to operate on Eastern Standard Time?


Based on the schedule, a train was scheduled to leave Penn Station for Bablyon at 4:54 AM. Did it leave at 3:54 AM based on eastern daylight time. Was a crew available? A train was scheduled to leave Bablyon for Penn Station at 4:10 AM. Did it leave at 4:10 as if the clocks didn't change.


Supposedly, crew shifts are shortened about one hour. Is there a reduction in pay or are they paid as if the time change didn't happen? Conversely, when the clocks go back in the fall and they have to work an extra hour, are they paid one hour of overtime?


This doesn't impact MetroNorth because the late night trains left their terminals prior to 2 AM.
