Metro-North's Danbury Line improvements getting back on track

Published 6:18 pm, Saturday, January 10, 2015

After years on the back burner, plans to improve commuter rail service to Danbury, and perhaps extend it as far north as New Milford, might be picking up steam.

While some improvements, including signalization, have recently been made to Metro-North's Danbury Line, bigger enhancements, like electrifying the branch line, remain in limbo -- frustrating not just commuters but also local leaders who see improvements as the key to economic growth.

Many officials believe electrifying the Danbury Line is long overdue, and when it is finally done, it will decrease road congestion and make it easier to bring workers to employment centers.

New Canaan Branch gets new rail cars for peak commuter departures
By Aaron Marsh on January 13, 2015
The departures that will run the M-8 cars are the 7:32 and 7:58 a.m. trains leaving from New Canaan and the 5:13 and 5:29 p.m. trains leaving from Grand Central. The state Department of Transportation expects the new trains will boost ridership by 44% over the next 15 years, and Malloy said it’s one step in making Metro-North reliable and able the meet regional demands.

“Currently, we’re running about 2,500 people Monday-Friday,” Malloy said of the New Canaan Branch. “We see that growing.” The areas around the branch’s stations such as Glenbrook and Springdale also are growing, he noted, and the governor said juicing up the entire rail system and the neighborhoods it reaches is “all part of the effort to unwind the damage that’s been done by two generations of underinvestment in transportation.”

East Side rail proponents find transit study results lacking

Martin B. Cassidy
Published 2:34 pm, Monday, July 15, 2013
Craig Lader, a senior planner at SRPA, said the agency understood East Side residents and business owners want a train station as soon as possible, but since this will take years, an interim plan makes sense.

"There are many reasons why a train station is not going to happen for a decade at best," Lader said.

"The community has made it clear they want something to take place as soon as possible, and we thought the bus would be the best way to introduce something on a near-term basis with all the political support that is needed."

Wesmont Train Station breaks ground in Wood-Ridge

March 12, 2014, 11:12 AM Last updated: Wednesday, March 12, 2014, 11:12 AM
By Susan JOy Clark
Officials broke ground March 11 on the new Wesmont Train Station, a state-of-the-art commuter rail station at the 70-acre mixed-use, transit-oriented redevelopment.

The new train station, located on the former site of the Curtiss-Wright aircraft facility, will connect with the Bergen County Line and is expected to generate approximately 800 daily trips. All of the buildings at the development will be within walking distance of the station, and will provide riders with a 25-minute commute into Manhattan.

The new station is a partnership of Somerset Development, the developer of property, and NJ Transit and is the first in New Jersey to break ground through a public-private partnership. Fall 2015 is the expected completion date of the station.

Elmhurst LIRR stop not a slam dunk


Photo By Christopher Barca

Passenger trains serving Elmhurst stopped along the tracks over Broadway until 1985, when the LIRR station there was razed. However, the MTA has proposed building a new, $40 million station in the bustling neighborhood by the end of the decade.

by Christopher Barca, Reporter


Nearly 30 years after Long Island Rail Road passenger trains last stopped in Elmhurst, the MTA has laid out plans to construct a new stop in the bustling northwest Queens neighborhood.

However, area elected officials and civic associations who have pressed for a station for years shouldn’t consider the $40 million plan as set in stone just yet.

State approves bond funds for work on new CT rail stations

By Shelton Herald on January 13, 2015
On the New Haven Line, new stations will be added in Bridgeport (to be called the Barnum Station, a second station in the Park City) and Orange, plus enhancements to the existing Merritt Seven Station on the Danbury Branch of the New Haven Line.

Barnum Station will be on the East Side of Bridgeport, between Bridgeport Hospital and East Main Street. The city’s existing train station is in downtown Bridgeport, and will remain operational as well.

How long would it take on average for a "proposed" station to actually be built from its first proposal?

Depends on what is near the station. Some of these stations are tied to large scale redevelopments in the neighborhood , those tend to take a few years. The regular proposed stations which just add service can take anywhere from 3-8 years. Its too long , but there's already a service in these areas , these stations are more about relief...and capacity expansion. Theres also stations that can come out of the blue like East Bridgeport and be built within a few years. Most of those Metro North stations should be built by 2020...same with NJT.... The LIRR is a different slower story. The MNRR has 12 in Planning / Pre-Construction Phase , NJT has 1 under construction which is Wesmont , and 5 in planning... The LIRR has 2 Proposed stations... All these stations should get built by the end of the decade.

On the note of station construction, do you know if there is any forward motion to Complete the Madison and Guilford Stations by adding a second platform?

One of my friends posted an image back in the Summer from Madison showing Construction of a second platform. Guilford has a Second Platform , I think you mean Clinton. That should begin this year...

Odd question, I've always observed that very few people take LIRR to the airport; do you think this is because of the fare, because people don't know about it/prefer the subway, taxi, etc, or for some other reason (inconvenience)?

I always hear people complain about the lack of a one seat ride, but I've honestly never seen the transfer at Jamaica Station that much of a pain.

I'm wondering if there will be a marked rise in use once East Side Access is completed.

The Fare seems to be the main sticking point ,but Ive seen many use it to go to Downtown Brooklyn. I don't know if usage will increase with the ESA...

Current Ridership from the 3rd Quarter Ridership counts & My Ridership Projections for Metro North & New Jersey Transit based on Redevelopment underway or proposed along the various corridors and lines , agency projections , and some other state / county info...

New Jersey Transit - Hoboken Divison


Pascack Valley line - 9,200 (2014) > 20,800 (2025) , Hackensack has a massive amount of TOD planned for the Downtown area , around 6,000 units could be built near Essex & Anderson Street over the next 10 years. Emerson , Westwood , Park Ridge , Nanuet and River Edge all have small TOD and infill Planned near the Stations.

Bergen County Line - 5,240 (2014) > 15,800 (2030) , With the Wesmont Redevelopment & station Under Construction , numerous Infill projects proposed and underway near the Rutherford station Ridership should see significant growth over the next 10 years. Fair Lawn is working on a town master plan which would include overhauling both Radburn and Broadway stations and rezoning the Broadway corridor.

Main Line - 11,470 (2014) > 36,800 (2030) , with TOD Plans being drawn up in Clifton , Ridgewood , Ramsey , Suffern and TOD already built near the Lyndhurst Station with more being planned its safe to say that ridership will skyrocket over the next 10 years...


Morristown & Gladstone Lines - 60,420 (2014) > 100,700 (2025) , With High Density TOD and infill underway in South Orange , Morristown , Orange & East Orange Ridership should explode over the next 10 years. Downtown Newark near Broad Street Station is starting to make a comeback after years of neglect with New companies setting up shop nearby or relocating companies from the burbs... Smaller towns like Netcong , Dover , Maplewood , Short Hills , Chatham and Madison have smaller Downtown TOD and Infill planned. The Reopening of Harrison Station is in the works which should add a few thousand riders with all the Ultra-High Density TOD underway in that town.

Montclair-Boonton line
- 17,390 (2014) > 37,200 (2025) , Recently Downtown Bloomfield has seen a slow but steadily increasing redevelopment boom adding 100s of new units with thousands in the pipeline. The area near Wateseeing avenue station also has a few thousand units underway or in the pipeline along Bay Street in Montclair. Boonton and Little Falls have small infill and TOD proposed near there stations..

Newark/New York Division

Northeast Corridor - 117,360 (2014) > 250,000 (2025) , Just about every station on the Northeast Corridor with the except of Jersey Ave has TOD underway or Planned. Downtown Newark in recent years has began to see billions investments with Billions more planned along with neighboring Ironbound which has seen Infill in recent years. At least 70,000 units are in the pipeline for Downtown Newark & The Ironbound and while not all this newer ridership is destine for NEC , its still a sizable increase. Downtown New Brunswick is another city seeing massive redevelopment and Job growth. Although not as large as Downtown Newark's plans , it will still boost Ridership by a Sizable amount. Princeton JCT , Hamilton , Edison , Rahway , Linden and North Elizabeth all have at least 6,000+ new units planned for the area around the station along with Retail and Commercial space. Metuchen has a few thousand units in the works for the Downtown areas replacing the sea of parking with a garage and high density TOD. Monmouth JCT is new station being planned and will be attached to a large scale TOD project with Thousands of units , Retail and Commercial Space. Downtown Elizabeth and Trenton seem to have a few projects in the works but lag behind their other corridor peers. Jersey Avenue has a few proposals , along with Metropark...but nothing solid yet.


North Jersey Coast line - 21,830 (2014) > 35,600 (2030) South Amboy , Perth Amboy , Red Bank , Long Branch & Asbury Park all have TOD master plans for the areas around there stations. Redevelopment seems to be picking up along the corridor in recent years and ranges from infill along Main Street to former Industrial areas being redeveloped into high density TOD or Condos.. Point Pleasant , Belmar , Woodbridge , Bradley Beach all have smaller plans in the works... Avenel seems to have various proposals but nothing Solid yet.

Raritan Valley line - 23,190 (2014) > 31,320 (2030) , Cranford , Union , Plainfield , Somerville and Raritan all have TOD in the works near there stations or in the pipeline.

Despite problems, Metro-North ridership rises

Theresa Juva-Brown, [email protected] 9:09 a.m. EST January 21, 2015

Despite chronic problems with overcrowded cars, delayed trains and slow commutes in 2014, Metro-North Railroad is expected to set a new ridership record.

Leaders estimate the railroad provided 84.7 million trips last year — the highest number in its 31-year history. Metro-North's previous record was in 2008, when it posted 83.6 million rides.

But as the railroad becomes busier than ever, officials continue to struggle to make much-needed track repairs and deliver reliable service each day, Metro-North President Joseph Giulietti acknowledged Tuesday.
