After a fatal Metro-North train derailment on the Hudson line Sunday, the Metropolitan Transportation Authority will continue to provide alternatives to commuters Monday morning.

The MTA will provide a shuttle bus between the Yonkers station and the 242nd Street terminus of the local 1 Train beginning Monday at 5 a.m. until further notice.

Two additional 1 trains will operate per hour during peak periods. The Hudson line will be cross-honored on the subway.

“Tomorrow, people who use this line should plan on a long commute,” Cuomo said Sunday.

More than 26,000 people who use the Hudson line are encouraged to use the Harlem line as an alternative, or to use the 1 Train.

Special parking will be available at the Southeast station on the Harlem line at Jensico Dam, close to Valhalla station. Representatives will assist customers making transfers.

The nature of the derailment is under investigation by the National Transportation Safety Board.

About 7:20 a.m. Sunday, a southbound Metro-North train derailed along a curved track about 100 yards from the Spuyten Duyvil station in the Bronx, officials said. Four people died in the incident.

All seven of the train’s cars and the locomotive were derailed.

Upon approval from the NTSB, the MTA will remove the derailed cars to begin repairs.

“We realize this is a very important railway for commuters in the New York area,” NTSB member Earl Weener said.
