The deadly Metro-North derailment Sunday that put the Hudson line out of commission will mean a crowded and long commute as thousands of daily commuters find alternative ways to get into the city.

The MTA is urging riders to use the nearby Harlem line into Manhattan. Meanwhile, Hudson line riders will have limited service from Poughkeepsie to Yonkers.

At 5 a.m., the MTA will have a bus shuttle to take commuters from Yonkers to the No. 1 train station at 242nd Street.

To handle new riders, the MTA will run two extra No. 1 trains per hour during peak periods.

There are 26,000 passengers that take the Hudson line on an average weekday, according to the MTA.

Affected riders will have their tickets cross-honored on the Harlem line and New York City Transit.

Investigators with the National Transportation Safety Board arrived in the Bronx at 12:30 p.m. Sunday to begin examining the derailment before allowing the MTA to get the line back in operation.
