Signal Testing Affecting Saturday Danbury Branch Service

View Comments ()



    Many commuters traveling on the Danbury Branch of the Metro-North New Haven Line will be boarding buses instead of trains on Saturdays for the rest of the month.

    Six trains will be taken out of service due to testing of a new signal system at crossings in the area, according to a release from the Department of Transportation. The testing will take place July 12, 19 and 26.

    Southbound buses will run 12 minutes earlier than trains are normally scheduled to depart and will leave Danbury at 7:37 a.m., 10:37 a.m. and 1:37 p.m.

    Three northbound buses will replace trains traveling from South Norwalk to Danbury and will depart 6-8 minutes earlier than usual, at 9:09 a.m., 12:07 p.m. and 1:07 p.m.
