NYC’s Public Transit System Expands to the Waterways

Tourists and locals rejoice: New York City is expanding its public transit system to the waterways, all for the same price as a subway ride. The new ferry system could begin operations as early as summer of 2017, with boats crossing the East River to transport passengers between Brooklyn and Manhattan. “It’s going to be a commute like no other: fresh air, harbor views, and a fast ride on the open water,” stated the mayor of New York.
