New, Earlier Ferry Departure at Soundview Now Available

Bronx residents asked for it and now they have it: A ferry that arrives at Wall Street before 7AM.

After a successful first year in service which exceeded expectation by 63%, NYC Ferry began operating a pilot ferry departing at 5:25AM, which arrives at Wall Street at 6:15AM, thanks to Bronx residents who asked for such an earlier service that would benefit more Bronxites like construction workers.

According to an email sent to Welcome2TheBronx from the New York City Economic Development Corporation, NYC Ferry is taking the opportunity to test out this new service as they enter winter schedule.

Even better news is that they were able to do this in a, “…cost-neutral way and we’re not spending more money to add this service”, according to communications that were made to Welcome2TheBronx on the matter.

This really goes to show that if we want something and enough people ask for it, we can make it happen.

Now let’s make sure enough people who want and need this earlier ferry, use it!
