Odell Announces Additional Parking for Southeast Commuters
As a result of the tragic incident on the Metro North Hudson River Line and the influx of commuters from northern areas affected by the indefinite closure of the Hudson River line, Putnam County has coordinated a plan with Metro North Railroad and the County Sheriff’s Office to assist residents who use the Metro-North Southeast Station and its parking facility.
“In order to alleviate parking congestion, we have coordinated four auxiliary parking lots (Lot A, Lot B, Lot C, Lot D) with Home Depot and Kohl’s,” said County Executive MaryEllen Odell. “Putnam County Transportation will be providing a shuttle service loop during commuter hours to the Southeast train station from the auxiliary lots beginning tomorrow, Wednesday, Dec. 4, 2013. This additional shuttle service will continue until Metro North service is restored.”
Transportation shuttle services to assist residents from the Garrison and Cold Spring train stations to the Southeast Train Station will continue as scheduled.
