Thanksgiving Holiday Service



MTA Metro-North Railroad’s Thanksgiving Holiday Schedule is stuffed with more than enough service to get wherever you need to go. Holiday Timetables are available now at the Grand Central Information Booth and outlying ticket offices.




On Wednesday, November 26, we will operate 17 extra “early getaway” trains between 1 PM and 4:10 PM. (Because of decreased ridership in the late PM peak, several trains will be combined or deleted. See a current October 5 timetable for details.)




On Thanksgiving, (Thursday, November 27) we will operate a holiday schedule with extra service inbound in the morning for those of you heading to the Macy’s Parade. Outbound after the parade, there is lots of late morning/early afternoon service to get you to your turkey dinner. And feel free to stay at your host’s home as long as you wish. We’ve got lots of inbound evening trains to get you home, too! (See a Holiday timetable for details.)




The day after Thanksgiving (Friday, November 28), whether you who have to go to work, or get an early start on that holiday shopping, we’ve got you covered. We will operate a Saturday schedule with extra service during the AM and PM peaks and pre-PM peak. (See a Holiday timetable for details.)



On Saturday, November 29 and Sunday, November 30 our weekend service will have lengthened trains during the busiest travel times. And don’t forget about our extra Shoppers’ Specials service, which will remain in effect until December 28. (On Saturdays, there are two additional upper Hudson line trains, and 19 additional outer New Haven line trains; on Sundays there are three additional Harlem line trains, 16 additional inner New Haven Line trains, and five additional outer New Haven line trains. See a curent October 5 timetable for details.)




We offer off-peak fares throughout the entire four-day holiday, and you can also take advantage of unrestricted parking (no meters, no permits) at many of our stations. (Check for signs, or call 800-METRO-INFO; in New York City call 212-532-4900.) And finally, train tickets should be purchased before the holiday: Try WebTicket and get fast, free home delivery, or use one of our convenient ticket machines.




Please note: On Thanksgiving Day, you must have your ticket before boarding the train at Grand Central Terminal or Harlem-125th Street Station between 9:30 AM and 2:30 PM.
