HUDSON VALLEY, N.Y. -- Full train service will resume on Metro-North's Upper Hudson Line from Croton-Harmon to Poughkeepsie. All the main lines east of the Hudson River are now up and running.

The restoration of the 41 mile section of track means Metro-North is now providing service to 95 percent of its customers.

MTA CEO Joseph Lhota says he's thankful for the patience of commuters and the resilience of his MTA workers.

Lhota said, “Following Sandy, all Metro-North services were suspended as crews worked to remove downed trees and debris from the tracks.”

But West of the Hudson it's a different story. Service on the Port Jervis line is still suspended. There is no word on when trains will begin running on those tracks.
