The MTA just received its chunk of the massive $60 billion Sandy aid package, or $57 billion because of the sequester, according to a report by the New York Daily News.

Reeling in a total of $193.1 million, Governor Andrew Cuomo said that that a large chunk of the money, $141.6 million, will go to cover the cost of repairs to MTA equipment and facilities. The rest of that chunk will also pay for future storm preparedness measures.

The rest of the money will go to restore A line service to the Rockaways and fund repairs to Metro North and the Long Island Railroad.

Choo, choo.
