Riders on New York City's transit system should be prepared that Monday's commute won't be normal.

That's the word from Gov. Andrew Cuomo. He said Sunday that service continues to be restored after Superstorm Sandy, but there's still work to be done.

Cuomo also said riders should expect bigger crowds, including students returning to school after the storm and people trying to avoid driving cars because of the fuel shortage.

Also Sunday, Cuomo suspended tolls on the two bridges to the Rockaways, the Queens neighborhood hit hard by the storm. The loss of train service there made it hard for residents to get back and forth.

Suspension of the $3.25 cash toll and $1.80 E-ZPass toll will be in effect through the end of November.
