HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - Hudson Line commuters endured an extended train-bus-subway commute a day after a fatal train derailment in the Bronx. But rail service on Monday was unaffected for Connecticut commuters on the New Haven line and riders on New York's Harlem line.

MTA spokesman Adam Lisberg said Monday that 2,200 people used shuttle buses between the Yonkers station and No. 1 subway train. Ridership on the Harlem line was up 25 percent.

The MTA, which runs Metro-North, said riders should expect delays and crowded conditions.

Four people were killed and scores injured in the Sunday morning accident.

Rodney McLean of Beacon, who works on Wall Street, told The Journal News that the revised schedule took 2 1/2 hours to get him from home to Yonkers where he'd board a bus to the subway station in the Bronx.
