Overview

Metro-North Commuter Railroad was created as the MTA's operational arm for commuter railroad service in New York State and Connecticut, assuming control of Conrail's Metroplitan Region's commuter operations in 1983. Today, Metro-North is one of North America's premier commuter railroad operations in service and performance. Operating passenger over three east of Hudson lines and contracting out service to New Jersey Transit on two west of Hudson lines, Metro-North is the second largest commuter railroad in the United States with 60,000,000 passengers (1994) yearly and 339 route miles of track.
