    Waterbury commuters will not be seeing rails until mid-August. OK, this is not Waterbury, so you would not be seeing this anyway. Commuters will be hopping on the bus to get where they are going.

    Commuters showing up to the Waterbury train station Monday morning won't be seeing a single train.

    The Metropolitan Transportation Authority is shutting down train service on the line for about a month because the MTA is making around-the-clock repairs to almost 20 miles of track.

    The repairs will make train service more reliable out of Waterbury in the long run, MTA officials said.

    Instead of riding the rails, commuters will be shuttled by Peter Pan buses for about a month.

    The bonus for workaholics, procrastinators or news junkies is that the bus commute will come with free wi-fi.

    You’ll be able to get back onboard the trains on Aug. 15.
