NEW YORK (PIX11) – Metro-North riders can expect a hellish evening commute as the investigation into Sunday’s derailment that killed four people and injured over 60 others continues.

The MTA is urging riders of the Hudson Line to make alternate travel plans as regular service remains suspended until further notice. The transit authority recommends the Harlem Line as an option for commuters.

Shuttle buses will continue to replace rail service between Yonkers and the Van Cortlandt Park-242nd Street subway station. There will be extra No. 1 trains service to accommodate the increased amount of riders. Rail service will continued to be limited between Poughkeepsie and Yonkers. All tickets will be cross-honored.

Commuters should expect crowded conditions and delays.

On average, 26,000 people ride the Hudson Line daily during the work week.

    Monica Morales was far too cheery and upbeat this morning during the story of how the deadly train crash affected peoples' commute. The writer of this piece @ 6:37 (Dec 2, 2013)or so this morning was very insensitive to the victims and their families.
    The videos of the commuters' comments showed sincere feelings.
