BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (AP) — Connecticut commuters planned for long, slow trips to and from work today after last week’s train collision that that injured 72 people and disrupted rail service into New York City.

Metro-North was using 120 buses to help rail commuters make their way around the scene of Friday’s accident.

Officials say Friday’s collision affects about 30,000 people who normally use the train. About 700 people were on board the trains Friday evening when one heading east from New York City derailed outside Bridgeport.
