Metro-North officials to meet with Conn. commuters


STAMFORD (AP) — Connecticut commuters expect to hear from Metro-North officials about the commuter railroad’s 100-day improvement plan.

The executives, including the senior vice president of operations, were scheduled to address the Connecticut Commuter Rail Council on Wednesday during the group’s monthly meeting. Open to the public, the 7 p.m. meeting will be held at the South Western Regional Planning Agency in Stamford.

The council said Metro-North’s improvement efforts and operational issues will be discussed. Metro-North President Joseph (joo-LEH’-tee) has said the railroad’s priorities are to operate safely, communicate better and restore performance.

The commuter council is an independent state board that acts as an advocate for Metro-North commuters. Chairman Terri Cronin said “getting back to meaningful dialogue with Metro-North on rail performance” is a critical element of the council’s duties.
