FILE - In this Aug. 18, 2011 file photo, commuters wait on the platform as a Metro-North train arrives in Bridgeport, Conn. Connecticut has boosted service along two Metro-North rail lines, a move that comes as ridership on the commuter railroad that serves Connecticut and New York moves closer to pre-pandemic levels. Gov.
