Gov. Cuomo announced Thursday morning that A train subway service will be restored to the Rockaways on May 30, just over seven months after Hurricane Sandy destroyed tracks across Jamaica Bay and seriously damaged two stations.

“Superstorm Sandy devastated the entire [Metropolitan Transportation Authority] network like no other storm, but the MTA did a remarkable job of restoring service following the storm and at the end of this month, the A line to the Rockaways will be up and running,” Cuomo said in a statement issued Thursday morning.

The MTA is spending $250 million in other Sandy-related repairs and upgrades to lessen the impact of future storms on transportation, tunnels and repair efforts.
