    Staten Island Railway

    Staten Island Railway service runs hourly.

    • Trains will leave St. George Terminal 6 minutes after the hour starting at 12:06 a.m.
    • Trains will leave Tottenville 1 minute after the hour starting at 12:01 a.m.

    This will connect you with the further-reduced ferry schedule. Trains are scheduled to arrive at St. George Terminal about 15 minutes before the ferry leaves. Trains to Tottenville are scheduled to leave about 10 minutes after the ferry arrives.

    Bus service

    Buses are operating on a reduced schedule because of decreased crew availability. MTA is strategically supplementing some bus service to help prevent overcrowding.

    Changes to how you ride

    You can only make MetroCard transactions at MetroCard Vending machines. This helps limit person-to-person contact for our station agents. Reduced-fare cash transactions can still be made at the booth.

    There is a new rear-door boarding policy to keep riders and operators at a safe distance.

    Board local and SBS buses through the back door. Riders who need the ramp can board through the front door and use the priority seats. Express bus customers will still board through the front door.
