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.
Born and educated in the US, Laura Shoaf now holds one of the UK’s top transportation jobs, Managing Director of Transport for West Midlands (TfWM). We asked Shoaf whether the new transportation agenda there could offer any lessons for planners in North America.

Canada's Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's election success and new approach to governance have Canada in the news the world over, but what does this mean for transportation and infrastructure?
With a record winter in Boston early this year, many questions have arisen on the transit system’s ability to maintain safe and reliable service during adverse weather. The MBTA suspended all services on three separate days this winter, and experienced delays throughout much of the harsh weather. So how can transit systems maintain resilience during extreme winters?
