Norwalk Mayor Richard Moccia and MTA police Chief Mike Coan discuss the morning commute on the New York bound platform at the South Norwalk railroad station Monday morning.

 

Norwalk Mayor Richard Moccia said that traffic was calm around the city this morning and was not as crowded as he feared last night when a made a reverse 911 call to city residents asking for them to carpool.

“It is better than I thought it would be. People are heeding my advice and the governor’s message to either work from home or carpool to work.”

Many residents will be taking busses eastbound from Norwalk when they return to South Norwalk from work tonight, Moccia said.

Many of the state Department of Transportation busses will gather in Veteran’s Park and shuttle over to the train station to pick up east bound commuters.
