It is that time again, the return of the Staten Island Railway’s “Get-A-Way” service. Here are the details courtesy of a press release sent to me by the MTA:
Staten Island customers looking to get a head start on their Thanksgiving celebration will be able to catch earlier afternoon express train service on Wednesday, November 25 with Staten Island Railway’s Early Departure “Get-a-Way” schedule. The “Get-a-Way” schedule means extra SIR trains will be added earlier in the afternoon beginning at 2:30 p.m. from the St. George Ferry Terminal. There will be one express train and one local train awaiting every boat until 7:50 p.m. On Thanksgiving Day, Thursday, November 26, SIR trains will run on a weekend schedule, while on Friday, November 27, trains will run on a regular weekday schedule.
The Get-A-Way service plan on SIR is also available on the Friday before the Memorial Day weekend, the day before the 4th of July, the Friday before Labor Day, Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve.
