THE BRONX - Subway riders in the Bronx are dealing with commuter chaos on the first work day since service changes kicked in on the 6 train.

MTA officials say that for the next several months, trains will be bypassing the Castle Hill Avenue and Middletown Road stations, forcing some to take a shuttle bus to another station.

Many shuttled straphangers ended up at the Parkchester station. Commuters there say that the stop is crowded on a normal day, but is now jam-packed because of the extra people.

The changes are all part of a $190 million restoration project that's expected to last until May.
