DETAILS: Subway, Bus, Rail Options After Sandy

The MTA restored or extended subway service for several more lines Sunday as crews have continued working around the clock to pump water out of flooded stations and tunnels throughout the city.

But officials said restored train lines will run less frequently than normal Monday and are warning straphangers to expect delays.

"We are concerned that if we over tax the system it could come down," said MTA Chairman Joseph Lhota. "It's a recovery stage. This is uncharted territory."

Meanwhile, emergency measures implemented by the New York City Taxi and Limousine Commission allowing passengers to share taxis or to hail livery cabs on the street end after 11:59 p.m. 

Govs. Cuomo and Christie have announced the Holland Tunnel will reopen to all commuter traffic Wednesday, Nov. 7 at 5 a.m.

The Queens Midtown Tunnel was reopened for buses heading into Manhattan earlier Tuesday.
