Nyc ferry

Governors Island just became more accessible with extended ferry service. And now your dog can go, too.
The Throgs Neck NYC Ferry stop is basically only accessible by vehicle or bicycle.
As the system expands, transportation experts warn that the heavy subsidy necessary to keep the ferry system cheap is increasingly unsustainable.
"I told you we shouldn't have gotten on this ferry," one rider can be heard lamenting. "It wasn't meant to be."
The city said they hope to restore service by Tuesday.
"Take them off the boat, we got to go home!"
The city has not publicly stated whether two new NYC Ferry routes will happen under the mayor's post-coronavirus budget.
'These families were humiliated and traumatized in public view and treated as suspect because they happen to be Muslim.'
Riders of Mayor Bill de Blasio's subsidy-soaked ferry system are significantly richer and whiter than their mass transit counterparts.
The city plans to spend $300 million over the next five years to double its ferry service.
We're gonna need a bigger boat.
Several councilmembers pointed out that the city's beleaguered subways and buses carry exponentially more riders than the ferry, but receive just a fraction of the per-rider subsidy.
