The Cortlandt Metro-North Railroad station serves Cortlandt, New York in the hamlet of Crugers via the Hudson Line. Trains leave for New York City every hour on weekdays, and about every 25 minutes during rush hour. It is 38.4 miles (61.8 km) from Grand Central Terminal and travel time to Grand Central is about 62 minutes.

Cortlandt is the second newest station on the Hudson Line (and seventh newest on the Metro-North system). It opened in April 1996, replacing the Montrose and Crugers stations at a point midway between them.[1] Cortlandt is the first station north of Croton–Harmon, where electrification begins southbound.

On February 15, 2012, Metro-North completed the expansion project of the station. The new facility includes an overpass extension that ties the original station east of the tracks with a new entrance on the west side off NY 9A, new parking and a landscaped, canopy-covered, intermodal drop-off plaza. The new overpass has a spacious, heated waiting area with numerous benches and a coffee concession.[2]
