More than five months after Hurricane Sandy took the South Ferry subway station off line, the MTA has announced that No. 1 train service will return to the water-logged station starting Thursday morning at 5 a.m.
MTA spokesman Kevin Ortiz tweeted that the No. 1 train will run through the Old South Ferry loop station. The main station was severely damaged by Sandy and is years away from reopening.
Since Sandy, the MTA has been running a “special” No. 1 train that terminates at the Rector Street station.
The MTA has announced earlier it was planning to reopen the old station to complete the link to the southern end of the No.1 train.
