With the Independence Day (July 4th) holiday weekend right around the corner, the MTA has released service plan information for it. Here is the service plan for the Staten Island Railway via its press release:
Staten Island customers looking to get a head start on their long weekend will be able to catch earlier afternoon express train service on Friday, July 1, with MTA Staten Island Railway’s Early Departure Getaway schedule. This 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 Monday, July 4, the SIR will operate on a Sunday schedule. Macy’s fireworks display will be held in the Hudson River between 9:20 and 9:50 p.m. The Staten Island Ferry will be suspended beginning at 8 p.m. The last boat from both terminals will be at 7:30 p.m. Both sides will resume service at 10 p.m. The Staten Island Railway will be prepared to add additional service after the fireworks, as needed
