In what will be good news to thousands of daily commuters, the 1 train will resume service to South Ferry as of 5AM tomorrow. The service is being restored to the old South Ferry loop station while the most recent full station complex is repaired after extensive damage due to Hurricane Sandy.
A quick note from the MTA about the station:
As a reminder, the old South Ferry Station only allows for the first five cars of a train to platform and egress is limited. Customers coming from points north and terminating their trips at the old loop station are urged to use the staircase at the center of the platform to exit the station. Customers entering the station should use the main entrance adjacent to the Staten Island Ferry terminal.
While this is not the most ideal setup, at least it helps shave off the extra time that was spent by commuters having to walk from Rector St to South Ferry especially with summer around the corner, that walk would not be fun.
