After 19 years, I have resigned from the Connecticut Commuter Rail Council. But I can promise you that I am not quitting my advocacy for my fellow commuters or the writing of this column.
No, it’s not your imagination. Service really is getting even worse on Metro-North. And there’s no sign of short-term improvements.
During the recent Metro-North meltdown, at least one coastal community (Darien) thought about using ferryboats to get commuters to New York City.
First of all, despite what some commuters may recently be thinking, the folks who manage and operate Metro-North are not stupid. They’re inconsiderate and uncommunicative sometimes, but not stupid.
