Metro-North will operate a weekday schedule on all lines on St. Patrick's Day, Friday, March 17, 2023.

If you are traveling from Poughkeepsie or Beacon in the morning, your ticket will be collected at the station prior to boarding your train.
This happened last year as well; what's special about Poughkeepsie and Beacon for St. Patrick's Day? Is there just a huge crowd of people trying to get on the train without tickets?

Similar to what they do at Yankees games; it must be the number of boardings.

So...why only Poughkeepsie/Beacon? What about Croton-Harmon, Tarrytown, and the many busy stations on other lines?
