NEW HAVEN, Conn. (CBSNewYork/AP) - Commuter rail service along Metro-North’s New Haven Line is becoming more frequent.

A new fall train schedule begins on Sunday with 45 additional New Haven Line trains each week, including 30 new weekend trains. There will also be increased service for customers traveling to Greenwich and Stamford during the weekday.

Department of Transportation Commissioner James Redeker said that more weekday train service is also coming in 2013, making this the biggest service enhancement in New Haven Line history.

Metro-North operates the New Haven Line, which runs from New Haven to Grand Central Station in New York City, under a service agreement with the Connecticut DOT.
