SOUTH NORWALK - Friday's train derailment in Bridgeport is expected to cause long delays Monday for commuters.
Gov. Dannel Malloy says 30,000 commuters have been affected by the derailment. He says several victims remain hospitalized, and one is still in critical condition.
South Norwalk is the first station open on the New Haven line west of Bridgeport. Anyone who lives east of South Norwalk will have to travel to that station if they want to get to New York City by rail.
Experts say Connecticut residents' commutes could take twice the usual time. Commuters should expect a lot of extra cars on the road during peak hours and should consider carpooling to alleviate traffic.
Weekly and monthly tickets into Manhattan will be honored on the Harlem line for commuters who want to drive to Westchester and take the rail from there.
