NEW YORK — Bronx commuters may benefit from more trains and added frequency on Metro-North's Harlem Line. Representatives with the Metropolitan Transportation Authority will meet with the public on Aug. 23 to discuss strategies to increase train service to Melrose and Tremont stations on the agency's Harlem Line. The meeting will be held at 5 p.m. at MTA headquarters in lower Manhattan.

The meeting builds on an October 2016 pilot program that increased Metro-North service at Tremont and Melrose stations from a two-hour frequency to hourly frequency during off-peak and weekend travel times.

The public hearing for later this month is the next step in implementing the pilot program into the railroad’s regular schedule.

In addition to increased frequency, the agency is also extending service with earlier inbound trains on weekdays and later outbound trains on weekdays and weekends.

Metro-North’s Harlem Line is an 82-mile commuter rail line originating at Grand Central Terminal and ending at Wassaic terminal in Wassaic, N.Y.
