Metro-North says train 'bar cars' not ending
NEW HAVEN (WABC) -- A group representing Connecticut commuter rail passengers says it's been assured that it's not last call for bar cars on Metro-North Railroad's New Haven line.
Jim Cameron, chairman of the Connecticut Metro-North Rail Commuter Council, says officials from the state and the train service assured them this week that there are no plans to eliminate the popular bar cars on rush-hour trains.
Questions arose recently over whether the bar cars would be phased out as Metro-North's old passenger cars are replaced.
Cameron says the advocacy group has been promised that's not the case.
The New Haven Line is one of the last in the nation to offer bar car service during rush hour.
