The building has undergone a complete inspection, Halifax Regional Municipality spokesperson Tiffany Chase said in a news release.  

The first afternoon trips will depart Woodside at 2:52 p.m. and Halifax at 3:07 p.m.  

Chase said the building elevator will not be operating until further notice due to water damage to electrical components.

In the meantime, Metro Transit will provide a shuttle for mobility-impaired passengers between the parking lot and the lower, accessible entrance to the terminal during regular Woodside ferry service hours.
