STAMFORD, Conn. (CBSNewYork) - On The Metro-North Railroad, both the Harlem and Hudson Lines are on their normal weekday schedules, but the New Haven Line has service changes and a suspension.

It’s all as a result of the blizzard.

The Waterbury Branch is suspended until further notice. No substitute bus service will be provided.

While there is regular service on the New Canaan and Danbury Branches, it is only at about 50 percent of its normal level. So, delays should be expected.

Overall ridership was down about 20% this morning and down about 50% on the Outer New Haven Line, between Stamford and New Haven.

One man spent the night at the Stamford station. Pushing a walker, he shuffled towards the first train going north on Monday morning.

He lives in Naugatuck, but can only get as far as Bridgeport because of the Waterbury branch suspension. Once he gets to Bridgeport, he didn’t even know if someone would be able to pick him up.
