May 24th Schedule Change Includes M8 Electric Trains

Exciting News — Beginning Tuesday, May 24, 2022, the long-awaited M8 Electric Multiple Unit (EMU) trains will begin service on Shore Line East!!

Electric trains are cleaner, emitting fewer carbon emissions compared to diesel trains, and include additional rider amenities such as electric outlets on each seat, updated restrooms, and improved luggage racks.

All trains will run an M8 set. However, due to current infrastructure and operational limitations, trains 1646 and 1697 will have bus service between Old Saybrook and New London. Please note that bus travel times listed on our schedule are approximate and may vary due to traffic.

In addition, select trains have minor time adjustments to accommodate the M8 operation.

The full schedule can be found here.
