South Ferry Subway Station

South Ferry Subway Station Overview

The South Ferry Subway Station in NYC was built in 1905 and was known for the fact that riders could only exit at that station if they were in the first 5 cars of the train. The Metropolitan Transportation Authority spent $450 million of the FTA’s post 9/11 funds to renovate the old station and bring it into the 21st century.

To that end, the ADA-compliant station now features a 600 ft. long, extra-wide platform that fully accommodates 10-car trains. It also features Forms+Surfaces versatile Transit Seating which offers sleek, comfortable respite for the 100,000 people that ride the subway each day.
