Commuters can voice concerns to top state official

Greenwich commuters and Metro-North users concerned about the recent issues on the New Haven line will have a chance to bring their questions directly to a top state official on Tuesday, Feb. 18.

Connecticut Department of Transportation Commissioner James Redeker will speak at a special discussion about the spate of Metro-North problems and controversies at the event, which will be held at the Pequot Library in Southport from 7:30 to 9 p.m. on Tuesday. This discussion was put together by The Citizen Transportation Lobby, whose coalition members include the Business Council of Fairfield County, the Commuter Action Group, Transit for Connecticut, CFE, Regional Planning Group, Tri-State Transportation Campaign and the League of Women Voters of Connecticut.

Jara Burnett, a Greenwich resident and a board member for the League of Women Voters of Connecticut, will serve as moderator for the event.

According to the league, the purpose of the meeting is to have commuters and other regular Metro-North users speak with Mr. Redeker about what the railroad is doing about the recent issues. There have been frequent delays, electrical issues, unreliable service and other problems. Ms. Burnett said that members of the public are invited to come ask Mr. Redeker questions and voice concerns.
