After Friday’s train collision in Bridgeport, Fairfield County’s Monday morning commute was a little different. Shuttle buses replaced many Southbound trains into Stamford, but travelers say, other than a slower commute, things were surprisingly normal.

According to the Metropolitan Transportation Authority website, 120 buses were assembled to transport travelers Monday morning. A shuttle train serviced travelers between New Haven and Bridgeport, with shuttle buses servicing commuters from Bridgeport to Stamford. Many were pleased with the readiness of the City and MTA.

According to MTA’s website, the train derailment is being investigated by the National Transportation Safety Board and track repairs are underway. The website says, “Full Metro-North service will not resume until well into the work week.”
