Statement from Borough President Vito J. Fossella on Staten Island Ferry Service Disruptions
We’ve heard from many very concerned Staten Island commuters about the disruptions in service at the Staten Island Ferry. We have been in touch with the NYC Department of Transportation to discuss this, and my office has offered to provide any assistance possible.
We know the NYC DOT and Adams Administration are working to restore a full regular schedule and we urge that a solution be found as soon as possible. The ferry is a lifeline for so many commuters. It is not only important, but an essential service for thousands. It is a part of Staten Island’s DNA and that is why I will work with the Adams Administration in any way I can to restore 15 minute service and get the schedule back to normal. We understand there are challenges, but our focus is on the commuters who simply want reliable service to get to their destination.
