With the sudden of loss power to the Metro-North New Haven line, after a high voltage feeder cable failed yesterday morning, the MTA announced a revised plan with limited bus/train service for the commuters starting today. And, unfortunately, the revised service could last for weeks.

You can see a map of the revised service here (PDF). The MTA explained that they are looking for alternative power sources, but the usual second "feeder normally providing service to the New Haven Line was out on scheduled repairs to accommodate upgrades required by Metro-North."

The agency says, "The service plan can accommodate approximately 33% of the regular ridership on the New Haven Line." Here's the breakdown from the horse's mouth:

As a result:
· Customers are strongly encouraged to stay home or should seek alternate service
· New Haven Line tickets will continue to be cross-honored on the Harlem Line
· Customers should expect crowded conditions and should listen for announcements at their station

Bus service will be provided on the Waterbury Branch and limited shuttle train service will operate on the Danbury and New Canaan Branches.
