Commuters headed into Penn Station were met with delays again on Tuesday morning.

NJ Transit service in and out of Penn Station was experiencing 60 minute delays, and LIRR service Jamaica and Penn Station and Woodside and Penn Station was briefly down due to a power outage.

LIRR service was later restored, but with residual delays during the morning rush.

Port Authority bound bus riders were also dealing with problems thanks to an accident inside the Lincoln Tunnel.

It didn't stop there. A tugboat hit the Portal Bridge on Tuesday afternoon, creating 45 minute delays in and out of Penn Station.
