Riders on Metro-North's New Haven Line can breathe a sigh of relief as the Metropolitan Transportation Authority says service will be fully restored for the Monday morning commute.

Con Edison crews have been working to fix a problem with a feeder cable that has forced limited service on the line.

The utility says a new substation began receiving power Friday.

It's welcome news to thousands of passengers who have been dealing with traffic and crowded trains.

The Metropolitan Transportation Authority has been running diesel trains and cross honoring tickets along the Harlem Line.

Once the Metro-North lines are successfully running, Amtrak's full Acela Express and Northeast Regional will also resume by Monday morning.

The MTA says it will reimburse riders affected by the power outage.

Customers with weekly tickets can apply for credit on October 9, and monthly ticket holders can apply on October 20.

Mail & Ride customers will be automatically credited.

WebTicket customers should visit a ticket window.

The deadline to apply is March 31.

Metro-North says it will open more ticket windows beginning October 21.
