CHAPPAQUA, N.Y. -- With Metro-North service on the Harlem Line limited due to Tuesday's deadly train crash with a vehicle in Valhalla, the Town of New Castle is offering a shuttle-bus service that will run from Chappaqua's train station to Ossining's train station.

The town, which announced the service Tuesday afternoon on its Facebook page . It will be offered from 5:30 a.m. to 10 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. to 8 p.m., periods that coincide with the morning and evening rush hours for commuters.

For the time being, Metro-North has suspended service on the Harlem Line between the Pleasantville and North White Plains train stations, offering bus service at both locations to bridge the gap. This means southbound commuters who begin their trips from Chappaqua would need to get off after only one stop.

Ossining's train station is part of the Hudson Line, where service has not been curtailed.

The town also is taking measures to limit non-local usage of the service, its statement adds:

"In order to prevent non-residents from taking advantage of this service - at the expense of our residents - we are requesting that riders show a monthly Chappaqua Metro-North train pass - or proof that you live in New Castle - to ride the shuttle."
