Governor Andrew Cuomo announced Wednesday that the MTA would begin resuming limited service on both Long Island Railroad and Metro-North beginning Wednesday at 2PM.

Limited subway service will be restored to 14 of the system's 23 lines on Thursday. In Manhattan ,service will only be available above 34th Street, with services in Lower Manhattan suspended indefinitely due to flooding and power outages.

Buses will also assist service between Manhattan and Brooklyn.

During Wednesday's press conference, Senator Chuck Schumer said New York state would be asking for 90 percent federal reimbursement.

The state's damage is expected to be in the billions.

Senator Kirsten Gilibrand also assured there would be no red tape delaying federal funding aids to help alleviate areas crippled by Hurricane Sandy's destruction.

ABC reports both PATH trains and NJ Transit will remain suspected until further notice, with NJ Transit expected to be restored slightly sooner.

All tunnels except the Holland and Brooklyn Battery tunnels are open.

The announcement comes after the MTA completely shut down for nearly three full days.

Massive flooding cause extensive damage to the city's subway system, the most in the transit systems's entire 108-year history.
