South Ferry station (Credit: MTA)

UPDATE: The station opening for 1 train service will be an old station at the South Ferry location.

Service for the train line will begin in the old station in the first week of April, Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced today.

The South Ferry station was crippled by Hurricane Sandy, and about 10,000 daily riders go through the station, he said.

The station was flooded 80 feet deep with about 15 million gallons of water, the governor added.

“The MTA has a long, tough job ahead as it tackles the immense job of virtually rebuilding the new South Ferry terminal station," he said.


More work will still face the MTA at the station, including refurbishing platform edges and replacing pistons.
