    Thanks for the research, Emily. Its great to know I can travel on the beautiful Hudson line on my Harlem monthly pass. Next stop Tarrytown for dinner with the wife!!!

      My jaw is practically hitting the floor right now. I can’t believe you actually commented :P

      I suggest you bring Paul along for dinner. Maybe introduce him to your wife :D

    You can also use a Port Jervis monthly ticket on the Hudson Line. A Beacon monthly pass will cover up to Salisbury-Mills Cornwall I believe.

    Great article – was really confused about this up until now.

    One question though: I have a monthly from a Zone 5, and want to leave from a Zone 6… do you think the conductor will charge me the difference or make me purchase a full ticket?

    • Emily says:

      Get a ticket from in between the two zones (probably comes out to $2.50?), not the full fare. I do that frequently, my monthly is from Goldens Bridge to White Plains. I then have a 10 trip for White Plains to Grand Central whenever I need it. I just show both tickets.

    i have spoken to a metro-north customer service representative, and was told that only monthlys and weeklys into Manhattan are now accepted on lines other than the line originally purchased for. has the policy changed?

    • Emily says:

      Will check for you…

    • Emily says:

      I’m told that the tickets should still be valid, as long as the zones match, and you’re not trying to use a NH Line ticket on one of the NY lines (or vice versa)

      • ed lastella says:

        are intermediate monthlys and weekly tickets for the harlem line also accepted on the hudson line? this does not seem to be mentioned in the conversion charts.

        • ed lastella says:

          sorry to bother you with another message. i have been told by customer service that intermediate monthlys and weeklys are valid only between the stops on the line marked on the ticket.

    have policies changed regarding the interchangeability of tickets between lines since June 17,2009?

    in the case of the yankee stadium stop, can a one way ticket to dobbs ferry from the stadium also be used to White Plains?

  8. Tracy says:

    I have a monthly from Peekskill to Grand Central. Occasionally I travel between Peekskill and Beacon (2 zones). Anyone know if I can use my monthly pass for this trip? I had one conductor accept it and another tell me no.

  9. ed lastella says:

    are Hudson and Harlem line 10 trip or round trip tickets to the yankee stadium stop interchangeable for use on either of these lines?
