Though subway service edged closer toward normalcy in time for today's morning rush, New Yorkers still faced crowded trains and buses. (Gothamist has photos of commuters lined up for blocks.)

To make matters worse, the lifting of last week's two-day HOV restrictions means that bus riders are, per usual, taking a back seat to motorists driving solo into Manhattan.

Meanwhile, we (and others) observed heavy cyclist traffic on the Manhattan Bridge and other crossings this morning, as folks continue to opt for the bike.

What was your commute like today?
