FAIRFIELD COUNTY, Conn. -- With no timetable for restoring service to and from Grand Central Terminal after Wednesday's explosion in Harlem, Metro-North is offering alternate routes for Fairfield County commuters leaving and heading into New York City.

The trains are running in Connecticut and in Westchester County on the New Haven, Harlem and Hudson Lines, a Metro-North spokesman said. But service ends in the Bronx. 

"There is service up there, but it may not be scheduled service," the spokesman said. 

There is no estimate on when full train service will be restored, he said.

Here is a line-by-line guide for northbound Metro-North commuters looking to get out of New York City:

New Haven Line

Riders heading out of New York City should take the No. 5 subway service to the 180th Street station and transfer to the No. 2 subway for service to 233rd Street to access Metro-North's Woodlawn station. New York-bound New Haven Line service will operate to Woodlawn station, where customers can take the No. 2 subway.

Harlem Line

For northbound service, customers should take the No. 5 subway to the 180th Street station and transfer to the No. 2 subway for service to 233rd Street to access the Woodlawn Metro-North station. Southbound customers can take Metro-North train to the Wakefield station and transfer to the No. 2 subway into the city. Limited local Metro-North train service will be provided between Wakefield and Fordham stations.

Hudson Line

Riders can get to and from New York City via the No. 4 subway and Metro-North's Yankees-153rd St. station.
