Limited transportation services for CT commuters

Commuters had a rough time with the power outages Friday, as Metro-North had no train service during the morning rush. Commuters could not get into New York City via train. However, some Connecticut residents who had been stranded in New York, were finally able to make it home early Friday morning. News 12 Connecticut saw one diesel train arrive in Stamford from Grand Central; others were halted. Metro-North is working toward providing limited service to and from Grand Central every two hours in an attempt to get service back to normal. However, full service on the New Haven line might not be up and running for six to eight hours after power is fully restored in New York City. But even if you do make it into the city, do not plan to ride the subway. Transportation officials now say subway service won't be restored in New York City by the afternoon rush hour. New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg says once the power is back on, trains will have to be moved out of tunnels and the signal system will have to be checked.
