The Bridgeport & Port Jefferson Ferry has been a unique and reliable way to travel for years, and for many commuters from the area who work in Connecticut, or vice-versa, it's the best way to get to and from work.
One commuter in the report goes back-and-forth each day from her Straftord, Conn. home to work at Stony Brook University, utilizing a personal car on each end of the ferry to complete the trip.
According to Fred Hall, vice president and general manager of the Bridgeport & Port Jefferson Steamboat Co., commuters are a small but vital percentage of the roughly 800,000 passengers who ride the ferry each year.
According to the report, the ferry company has plans to relocate the Bridgeport terminal to a proposed massive docking complex which would have on-site parking for walk-on ferry passengers and would be closer to I-95, cutting about six or more minutes in travel time and decreasing fuel consumption for commuters.
Do you use the ferry to commute to or from the Three Village area every day?
