Metro-North To Impose Alcohol Ban For Weekend SantaCon Event

To maintain orderly travel and safe station and terminal operations during this weekend’s SantaCon event, alcohol will not be permitted on MTA Long Island Rail Road and MTA Metro-North Railroad trains and in stations from noon on Saturday, December 9, through noon on Sunday, December 10.

The timeframe overlaps with the Long Island Rail Road’s usual ban on alcohol between midnight and 5 a.m. on Friday and Saturday nights.

MTA police officers will be on duty at Penn Station, Grand Central Terminal, and stations throughout the region, as well as on trains to enforce this restriction. The police will confiscate alcoholic beverages and issue summonses carrying fines or imprisonment. Violators may also be subject to removal from the train or station by police.

This temporary alcohol ban is in effect to ensure the safety of customers and train crews.
