Metro-North (officially MTA Metro-North Railroad) is a suburban commuter railroad running service from New York City to the northern suburbs in New York State and Connecticut. Trains run as far as Wassaic, Poughkeepsie, and New Haven. Metro North also provides local service within the Bronx, and from the Bronx into midtown Manhattan.
There are three Metro-North lines: the Harlem, Hudson, and New Haven. The New Haven line also has three branches providing connecting service to New Canaan, Danbury, and Waterbury. Amtrak also runs service along the New Haven and Hudson lines.
Some services are operated by diesel, but most services running directly into Manhattan are electric powered.
Metro-North mascot is Metro Man. A robotic cyborg in the shape of a train, he educates children about railway safety.
