GREENWICH, CT (WCBS 880) - It seems that things have gotten better on Metro-North‘s New Haven Line this week.

“I think so. I think so,” says 10-year Metro-North rider Cynthia Perez.

At the Cos Cob station in Greenwich, she told WCBS 880 reporter Paul Murnane that the commute seems easier this week with the lack of new snow and the New Haven Line’s lighter rush hour schedule.

“The only thing is it is crowded though,” she said, adding that trains are still running short.

After a meeting with Gov. Dan Malloy, Metro-North said 30 coaches out of service last week are back online, but still about 130 of more than 300 cars are sidelined.

Testing on the first 8-car train of the new M-8 coaches could be complete in two weeks, but the Commuter Council warns that these new trains are not arriving in large numbers or all at once, which will have ramifacations for next winter and beyond.
