Commuters who ride Amtrak, New Jersey Transit and the LIRR faced a nasty commute Monday morning.

NJ Transit trains in and out of New York City were subject to 20 to 30 minute delays due to Amtrak computer problems that affected control of signals and switches.

Midtown Directs were being diverted to Hoboken, where PATH was accepting New Jersey Transit Rail tickets.

New Jersey Transit bus and private carriers were also cross-honoring rail tickets.

There were also delays on the Long Island Rail Road due to signal trouble. There were 15- to 20-minute delays westbound and 10- to 15-minute delays eastbound. Atlantic Terminal westbound trains were operating with 10- to 15-minute delays.
