NJ Transit says it will have restored rail service into New York City to pre-Sandy levels by Monday.
 
Executive director James Weinstein says full restoration marks another milestone because most customers commute to and from Manhattan.

  Service levels on the North Jersey Coast Line will reach 96 percent when nine trains are added to the line starting Monday. Two of the trains will be electric and operate between Long Branch and New York's Penn Station.
 
The remaining seven trains will either originate or terminate in Bay Head. Four of those trains will resume service between Bay Head and Hoboken.
 
NJ Transit says rail operations systemwide will reach 94 percent of its pre-Sandy service level on Monday, with 658 of the 700 weekday trains scheduled prior to the storm operational.
