UNITED STATES -- The U.S. Department of Transportation is releasing $2 billion in emergency funds for transit systems affected by Superstorm Sandy. It's the first installment of nearly $11 billion signed by President Obama last week to restore and protect the area's transportation system damaged by the superstorm.

The Port Authority says the PATH rail system took about $300 million in damage. New Jersey's transit system suffered around $700 million in damage, though officials say that almost $100 million of that will probably be covered by insurance. ClientIP:, UserAgent: CCBot/2.0 ( Profile: TWCSAMLSP
