Falling leaves and rail maintenance

Falling leaves, when crushed by moving trains, leave a slippery residue on the running rail. This residue may affect the train’s ability to start and stop. In order to ensure safe operation, trains may operate at reduced speeds and/or operate slower than normal while entering or leaving stations. This may result in a longer ride.

Please allow additional travel time.

We apologize for any inconvenience and anticipate that these conditions will exist through mid-December.

Thank you for riding with Staten Island Railway.
