Buses will be provided to riders along Metro-North’s Danbury Branch line, instead of trains, on Saturdays and Sundays, Oct. 26-27 and Nov. 2-3.

The buses will run between Danbury and South Norwalk as much as 20 minutes earlier than scheduled trains, according to Metro-North.

The change will allow crews to replace railroad ties along the tracks.

Weekday, off-peak substitute busing will continue through Friday, Nov. 15.

Riders are urged to check local or express bus service to their destination when boarding.
