WHITE PLAINS - Commuters drove to White Plains this morning to catch trains into Manhattan amid a massive service outage affecting the New Haven Line.

People drove from Connecticut and parked as close as they could to the city's Metro-North station, which operates on the Harlem Line. Huge crowds built up at the Stamford station as only a limited number of diesel trains are heading to Grand Central Terminal.

Instead of driving their own cars, many also rode the I-Bus from Stamford to White Plains.

White Plains officials are encouraging drivers not to park in the station's lot because it's filled with residential permit holders. They say the Galleria garage on Main Street will provide more options.

Metro-North officials say the outage is expected to last up to three weeks.
