Looking for a way to get to the Yankees' home season opener? You may be in luck.

The Metro-North Railroad is bringing back extra game-day service to Yankee Stadium, just in time for the team’s season opener at home against the Toronto Blue Jays on April 5. Long Island Rail Road riders can access Metro-North by taking the train to Grand Central Madison.

For every game, Metro-North will operate shuttle trains, with stops between Grand Central Terminal, Harlem-125th Street and Yankees-East 153rd Street stations, officials said in a statement Tuesday.

Long Island baseball fans previously had to transfer to the subway or sit through what often would be significant traffic to get to the Bronx on game days.

"Now, instead of sitting on the LIE or the Major Deegan, they ride to Grand Central Madison, come right upstairs, and hop onto a Metro-North train that will take them to the stadium in about 16 minutes," Catherine Rinaldi, the Metro-North president and former interim president of the LIRR, said last year.
