Metro North should definitely add service to that station during an event like that since the trains get packed. NWP trips operate half hourly most of the time with one train stopping at all stops in the Bronx while the other just stops at Fordham. The other should definitely make a stop at Botanical Garden imo so service is half-hourly. I used to use those express trains to North White Plains from Fordham. That's an example of where you want some sort of express service for your riders going to Westchester. They are paying the highest fees, traveling the furthest and should have some express service. The solution if anything is to have more local train service to ensure that Botanical Garden is adequately served during that time period. Perhaps special holiday trains even. There was a train I used to get during rush hour pre-COVID that I think terminated within the Bronx to allow for express service to Westchester and address any overcrowding. Speaking of overcrowding, I was coming from Westchester and on the Harlem Line. The train was so crowded that I could not get out at Woodlawn. I was pretty pissed. I had to get off at Fordham instead. 0 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
