A few days ago the MTA e-mailed a press advisory announcing the Christmas Eve service for the Staten Island Railway. Here are the complete details (Sorry for being late):
MTA Staten Island Railway (SIR) officials today announced their “Get-A-Way” service plan for the upcoming Christmas Eve.
On Wednesday, December 24, SIR customers can take advantage of the early departure service to begin their four-day Christmas weekend. Express train service will begin at 2:31 p.m. out of St. George Terminal, and there will be one express train and one local train awaiting every boat until 7:50 p.m. This amounts to twice as much regular service, two hours ahead of schedule. Customers using the express trains will have a faster ride home, while local train riders should have a more comfortable ride on less crowded trains.
On Christmas Day, Thursday, December 25th, SIR trains will run on a weekend schedule, while on Friday, November 28th, trains will run on a regular weekday schedule.
“This early departure service plan is quite a hit among our customers; they are happy to get home a bit faster before a holiday,” said John Gaul, Chief Officer of SIR. The “Get-A-Way” service plan on SIR is also available on New Year’s Eve, Friday before Memorial Day weekend, the day before July 4th, the Friday before Labor Day, and the Wednesday before Thanksgiving Day.
