Metro-North Commuters To Air Complaints
FAIRFIELD, Conn. (CBSNewYork/AP) – Metro-North commuters will have a chance to ask questions of the state’s top transportation official about rail service that has faced criticism in the last few months.
The “commuter speak out” is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. Tuesday at Pequot Library, 720 Pequot Ave. in the Southport section of Fairfield.
Connecticut Department of Transportation Commissioner James Redeker will answer questions from commuters. Metro-North runs the New Haven line under a contract with the state Transportation Department.
The event is sponsored by The Connecticut Citizens Transportation Lobby with several other groups participating.
On Monday, the Metropolitan Transportation Authority and the state agreed to establish an independent review of projects before work is done on power or electrical lines to avoid outages similar to a major disruption last September on the Metro-North Railroad.
