Two top Metro-North Railroad officials will attend a commuter sound-off meeting scheduled tonight in Southport, Conn., the railroad said.
Senior Vice President for Operations John Kesich and Vice President for Customer Service and Stations Sue Doering, are will be on hand in the session, which begins at 7:30 p.m. in the Pequot Library, 720 Pequot Ave.
Also expected on hand is Commissioner James Redeker of the Connecticut state Department of Transportation, which works with Metro-North in running the New Haven Line, called by many the busiest passenger rail line in the country.
Sponsored by the CT Citizens Transportation Lobby, the meeting is meant mainly for riders on the New Haven Line, which has been hit hard by a deterioration in service over the past year. But Jim Cameron, a rail activist helping organize the meeting, said all Metro-North customers are welcome.
While he expects some commuters to be angry about late trains and other problems, he urged people to listen as well as talk.
