Metro-North opening to new Yankee Stadium

The Metro-North Railroad says service to its new station near Yankee Stadium will begin May 23. That's about five weeks after the first official game at the new Bronx stadium.

Metro-North President Howard Permut says the project was completed in two years, faster than any other major station undertaking in the railroad's history.

The railroad says regular service to the station will be supplemented on game days by a nearly continuous shuttle from Grand Central Terminal.

The new station is on the railroad's Hudson Line. Some stadium trains also will loop around to stations on the Harlem and New Haven lines.

As many as 10,000 fans are expected to use the trains on game days.
