A second ferry service is coming soon to Staten Island, bringing relief to commuters on the borough's southern end while the city Department of Transportation fixes the Staten Island Railway, which was damaged by Hurricane Sandy.
This express ferry would take passengers from Great Kills to Pier 11 at Wall Street in Lower Manhattan and then continue on to 35th Street.
Though the original Staten Island ferry is up-and-running, the limited SIR service is making it hard for residents to get to the St. George Ferry Terminal.
The Department of Transportation hopes to have the ferry service running by Monday.
A one way ticket would cost $2.
The ferry would make six trips from Staten Island to Manhattan between 6 and 9 a.m. and six return trips between noon and 6:15.
