The Federal Transit Administration has announced nearly $900 million in funding for the Metropolitan Transportation Authority to fix damage caused by Hurricane Sandy.

The money will also be used to better prepare the city's transit system for potential natural disasters in the future.

The MTA has already spent $180 million on Hurricane Sandy-related projects and has committed more than $750 million to other Hurricane Sandy projects.

New York City Transit will get the lion's share of the funds because of the amount of damage the subway system sustained during the storm.

That includes the long-term service disruptions that riders are still dealing with on lines like the G, the R and the A.

Some of the money will also go to the Long Island Rail Road and Metro North.
