Supporting New York's new citywide ferry service

24 April 2017

New York’s first citywide ferry service, NYC Ferry, will be launching on May 1, 2017, one month ahead of schedule. To celebrate the arrival of the first three of 20 new vessels, Mayor Bill de Blasio took an inaugural ride aboard one of the new ferries and held a dedication ceremony at Pier 1 in Brooklyn on the morning of April 17.

The NYC Ferry service will launch on the new Rockaway route, which joins the existing East River route. Two other routes will open later this year with an additional two opening in 2018, completing the system.

Long Island and Metro North Rail Road, the two largest commuter rail services in North America, commissioned SDG to develop new ticket sales and ridership forecasting models for them. For the Metropolitan Transportation Authority, SDG was part of a team that completed an extensive economic analysis of the value of the agency’s capital plan for the New York metropolitan region.
