STAMFORD, Conn. (WTNH)-- Connecticut commuters are gearing up for another tough morning commute as we enter day three of the big power problem on the Metro North tracks.
There has been a little bit of progress, but it still looks like it will be weeks before things are back to normal.
Some people who were riding the rails are hitting the highways, but that too is proving to be a tough commute.
"On a regular day it's 20 minutes. Now it's an hour and a half," said Erin Doeber.
A power failure that crippled Metro-North is crippling plans. Commuters who usually ride the rails to work are forced to take alternate routes.
"We've been on the road for two hours. I don't know what time we are going to be in Boston," said Fernando Goyeche.
Taxi drivers waited for would-be passengers. The Metro-North train trouble is cutting into their business.
"Since the train stopped, it's been slow and we spend about two hours here before we get a fare," said John Mercier, taxi driver.
"We have been waiting here and nothing. There is no business, nothing at all," said Daniel Eugene, taxi driver.
No one's fighting for a taxi at the Stamford train station. With more cabs than trains, business is slow.
"No business. Very slow. I stay like about and hour and a half," said Milo Merolus, taxi driver.
Ever ready Stamford Taxi drivers say they're averaging two passengers a day.
"We have no choice because we depend on people who go to work and the train is not working. We are not working too," said Mercier.
Some people riding the train say it wasn't crowded at all.
"Everybody avoided the station, there was nobody," said a commuter.
And those riding the rails say it's confusing.

"I think the most frustrating thing is you don't know when they're running and how they're running, you just have to land at Grand Central and try to figure out, all right where do I go," said Chris Weir.
The train station in Stamford wasn't as crowded as yesterday.
But people who are riding the rails say the schedules and times are puzzling.
Metro-North is also reviewing their refund policy.
