THE BRONX - The MTA has set up several park-and-ride spots where more than 100,000 displaced Metro-North commuters can board a free shuttle bus.
The lots are in response to major service disruptions on the Metro-North New Haven Line, which started last Wednesday with a serious power failure caused by a feeder cable issue.
The Orchard Beach parking lot is one of two Bronx locations connecting riders to the No. 6 subway line at Pelham Parkway. The other is located at the East 153rd Street garage at Yankee Stadium.
