Metro-North Trains will Run at the Same Time Friday and Saturday With Earlier Service on Sunday
Fans Can Also Get to the Games via Subway, Bus and Paratransit
One of the most heated rivalries in sports returns to Yankee Stadium this weekend, and Metro-North Railroad is marking the series by adding service to ensure fans can cheer on the Bronx Bombers as they take on the Boston Red Sox with night games at 7:05 p.m. Friday and 7:15 p.m. Saturday, and an afternoon game at 1:35 p.m. Sunday. Extra trains to deliver fans will run on the Hudson, Harlem and New Haven Lines, and regularly scheduled Hudson Line trains will make extra stops at Yankees-E 153rd St.
“If you want to get to Yankee Stadium quickly and comfortably, there’s no better way to go than Metro-North,” said Catherine Rinaldi, Metro-North President and Long Island Rail Road Interim President. “Metro-North is adding extra service to ensure that all fans make it for the first pitch and can be there to cheer on their team for what I’m sure will be some of the most exciting games of the season. Go Yankees!”
“All New York fans can debate what’s better the D, B or 4 train but something that’s beyond a doubt is that mass transit is the best way to get to the Yankees – Red Sox series this weekend,” said NYCT President Richard Davey. “The only score that matters to me is how many fans take the bus, paratransit or the train to the game.”
