MTA considers more frequent stops

The Metropolitan Transportation Authority held a hearing last week in Riverdale to gauge public interest in doubling the number of stops trains make at the Spuyten Duyvil and Riverdale stations during off-peak and weekend hours.

Metro-North Railroad has proposed implementing half-hourly stops during those times at both stations, and, as a result, will add more Hudson Rail Link feeder buses — which shuttle commuters from the stations to local stops throughout the neighborhood — accordingly. Currently, trains and buses come once an hour during those times.

Marjorie Anders, spokeswoman for the MTA, said the change stems from am increase in commuters the agency is seeing at both stations. With the addition of the Hudson Rail Link buses, she said, “those stations have really come to life.”
