The New York DOT has proposed four stops in the Bronx on the New Haven Line on the east side near Oak Point (Bruckner Blvd) to and from New Haven and Penn Station. There has been service on this route until 1954 when discontinued because of low ridership. The adjacent Route 6 Pelham Bay Line provided convenient similar service for less.
The MTA who also operates the Pelham Bay Line today nor Metro North have expressed interest in the proposal.
An historic note. The defunct New York, Westchester & Boston Railway followed a portion of the New Haven Line from East 178th Street to 133rd Street adjacent to the Harlem River. This made the New Haven Line six tracked between these points from four tracks. NYW&B was built 1912 and abandoned December 31, 1937 and terminated at White Plains and Port Chester.
