What's the commuter train like that runs from Grand Central to Yankee Stadium? Is this a better option than the traditional subway line? Thanks!!

I think its called the blue line, forgot the name of it, whiteplains line or some sort that goes to yankee stadium. The train stops at the 153rd street station not far from yankee stadium. I cant really give you an answer because I live close to yankee stadium and I generally walk to the games and after the game is over I walk back home and yes even at night. 4 train tends to get crowded before the game begins.

Default unlike

a subway it's a suburban commuter train, it's less dirty, less noisy, less crowded(on weekends), more comfortable, it probably runs less frequently during off hours and may not always stop at the stadium (I don't know the schedule) it's more expensive and reaches farther afield(you can get to Conn for example by transferring at 125th street) in the metro area

when and if it's convenient it's a more expensive but nicer way to go

its 4.25 one way in the city and only stops at the stadium during games. It's the hudson line, but you have to take a local train in order to get to the station, others will just skip it and go straight to Yonkers.

That said, it's still like a 20 minute commute on the local train up there, so really, you might as well just take the subway. I'd only recommend taking Metro North there if you're coming from upstate.

Agreed, from Grand Central to Yankee Stadium on the 4 train is no more than 20 min with no delays, and leaves you right in front of the Stadium. If you already have a metro card with money on it, might as well utilize it...

It's the Hudson Line (Green Line). I believe some Harlem (blue) and New Haven (red) Line trains stop at Melrose and have shuttles to Yankee Stadium.

Metro-North is less crowded, but a lot more expensive. The fare is $7.50 during rush hours, $5.75 off-peak, and $3.75 on the weekends. By comparison, the subway is $2.25 at all times.

If you live in Westchester or the northern Bronx, it is much better than having to go to 125th Street and then take the (4) back to Yankee Stadium, or having to take a bus to the (B),(D) or (4) trains
