NAUGATUCK, Conn. (AP) - Commuters along the Waterbury branch line of Metro-North Railroad are meeting with a commuter rail official to continue their campaign for better service.

Mike Donnarumma, district superintendent on the New Haven Line, is responsible for overseeing work along the Waterbury branch line. He’s set to meet at 7 p.m. Tuesday at the Naugatuck Train Station with commuter advocates of the Connecticut Rail Commuter Council.

Commuters want to discuss new train schedules and more trains used on the schedule, buses used as substitutes for rail service, parking, rail and service improvements and other issues.

Among recent improvements to the Waterbury line is the addition of two late-night weekend trains that are credited for increasing weekend ridership.

The 27-mile-long Waterbury line shuttles commuters to the main New Haven line linking Connecticut to New York City.
