  • No, Metro-North has a long way to go
  • I don't ride Metro-North

Customer satisfaction on the New Haven Line is at 87 percent, up from 76 percent in 2015. While 87 percent constitutes a large gain for the New Haven Line, it still ranks third behind the Hudson and Harlem lines, which boasted satisfaction ratings of 92 percent. Overall, Metro-North had a 90 percent satisfaction rating.

Metro-North's east of Hudson lines improved satisfaction in all time periods:

  • Peak time satisfaction: 87 percent; up from 81 percent in 2015.
  • Reverse peak time satisfaction: 94 percent; up from 83 percent in 2015.
  • Weekday off-peak: 93 percent; up from 84 percent.
  • Weekend off-peak: 95 percent; up from 93 percent.

One of the key drivers to improving the overall satisfaction score was on-time performance. Metro-North had 80 percent of its trains arrive on-time in 2016, up from 74 percent the previous year.
