Metro-North and New York City Transit Make it Easy to Catch the Yankees Battle the Boston Red Sox in the American League Division Series

Metro-North Direct Game Day Service to Yankee Stadium is Back for the Post-Season on the Harlem Line; Extra Metro-North and Subway Trains After Game

 

 
Metro-North Railroad and New York City Transit will operate special service for post-season games at Yankee stadium.   Direct service to Yankee Stadium is back on the Harlem Line for the series, which means that Harlem Line customers can avoid a transfer or a drive to a Hudson Line station.
 
A combination of regular service and frequent direct Yankee Clipper service to Yankees-E. 153rd St. Station will be in effect for the American League Division Series on the Harlem, Hudson and New Haven Lines for both games, with trains before, during and after the game.
 
Before the game, New York City Transit will run full rush-hour level service to the subway stop at 161st Street–Yankee Stadium. After the game, seven 4 trains, and five d trains will be on standby for additional Manhattan-bound service.  
 
While Metro-North serves the Yankees-E. 153rd Street station 365 days a year with local Bronx service on the Hudson Line, the railroad offers extra service on all three of its east of Hudson lines for game days.
 
Avoid the crush of game day traffic and expensive parking fees and enjoy an easy one-ticket ride on Metro-North to Yankees-E. 153rd Street station.  The Stadium is less than a 10-minute walk from the station.
 
 
Yankee Stadium-bound service:
Harlem Line
Inbound direct Yankee Clipper train will leave Southeast at 4:25 p.m., making stops at Brewster, Goldens Bridge, Mt. Kisco, Chappaqua, North White Plains, White Plains, Hartsdale, Scarsdale, Crestwood and Bronxville, arriving at Yankees-E. 153rd St., at 5:47 p.m.
 
For detailed schedules for each station, please visit: http://as0.mta.info/mnr/schedules/sched_form.cfm
 
Customers wishing to travel at other times may use regular Harlem Line trains to Harlem-125th St and transfer to shuttle or Hudson Line trains for the short 9-minute trip to Yankees-153rd St station.

Hudson Line
Metro-North will provide direct service to the game from all stations both north and south of Croton-Harmon via regularly scheduled trains.

For Hudson Line service to the game, see the Hudson Line Yankees- E. 153rd St. Service Schedule

New Haven Line:
Inbound direct Yankee Clipper train will leave New Haven at 4:10 p.m., making stops at West Haven, Milford, Stratford, Bridgeport, Fairfield Metro, Fairfield, Westport, So. Norwalk, Darien, Noroton Heights, Stamford, Greenwich, Rye, Larchmont, and New Rochelle, and arriving at Yankees-E. 153rd at 6:05 p.m.  
Customers wishing to travel at other times may use regular New Haven Line trains to Harlem-125th St and transfer to shuttle or Hudson Line trains for the short 9-minute trip to Yankees-153rd St. station.  
For details see New Haven Line Yankees-E. 153rd St. station schedule New Haven Line Yankees-E. 153rd St. station schedule

Grand Central Terminal & Harlem-125th Street
Shuttle service to Yankees-E. 153rd St. will also be available from Grand Central Terminal and Harlem-125th Street.   
 
Post-Game Service:
All post-game direct Yankee Clipper trains on the Hudson, Harlem and New Haven Lines will depart 20 – 45 minutes after the game ends.
 
Shuttle service from Yankees-E. 153rd St. will also be available to Grand Central Terminal and Harlem-125th Street.

No comment.   Except that my first name is David.   I try to live up to that.

Do the specials off the Harlem and New Haven lines use the North leg of the wye at Mott Haven to get to the stadium station on the Hudson line?

Hmm, I think somebody's a White Sox fan!

Could be the Cubs! I know he's a Blackhawk fan 'cause so am I. 

Moot point about the Yankees anyway, ther're out ( on a very iffy call I might add).

By next year everyone will forget the directions.

Dyed-in-the-wool Cubs, Black Hawks and Fire fan.  Don't really follow the team that plays at 35th & Shields.
