    I've brought both my big yellow lab and my small chihuahua mix on the Metro North Railroad from Connecticut to Grand Central. I usually leave from the West Haven station, though. The train can be crowded at times, but if your dog is well-behaved, doesn't bother people, and doesn't occupy a seat then you shouldn't have any problems. (Once you get into the city, however, you cannot ride on the subway unless your dog is small enough to fit in a carrier, and again, if can be super crowded, so make sure your dog doesn't mind being cramped in very close quarters with strangers. )
