The Metropolitan Transportation Authority is getting nearly $200 million to help the agency recover from Hurricane Sandy, and the majority of those funds will go to New York City Transit.
Federal officials announced the release of $193 million Wednesday, which is the first round of federal funding the MTA has received to rebuild after the storm.
New York City Transit will receive $146.1 million. The funds will be used to repair and replace equipment and facilities that were damaged. Included in the allocation of funds is $17.9 million for work on the A Line in the Rockaways.
Funding for storm preparation costs, such as placing sandbags and covering vents, is also included.
