The first commuter rail line to launch in Connecticut in decades is up and running, but was overwhelmed in getting started.
The line began running daily service between New Haven, Hartford and Springfield, Massachusetts over the weekend.
Thousands took advantage of the offer of free rides this weekend, and yesterday the service could not handle the traffic.
Trains were filled to capacity and passengers were turned away, with buses brought in to handle the extra load.
Officials say the new service will be easier to deal with from a traffic perspective.
