    Metro-North’s New Haven Line is operating around 65 percent of its regular service this morning after adding additional trains.

    The Metro-North line has been at limited capacity since last Wednesday, when a Con Edison circuit failed in Mount Vernon, N.Y.

    Officials said normal commuter rail service between New Haven and New York City should resume by Oct. 7 or Oct. 8.

    Metro-North Railroad riders on the New Haven line who have monthly or weekly passes will get credit for their troubles since last week's power failure.
    The MTA Board on Tuesday approved credit toward future purchases for New Haven Line customers with monthly or weekly tickets valid for travel between Sept. 25 and the restoration of full service.
    The Waterbury branch regular train service resumed yesterday.
