Boston, MA: Seeking Input on Water Transportation

Posted by Joe Gentle on Tuesday, September 5th, 2017

A new water transportation project in Boston needs your input!

Seeking Input on Water TransportationThe project is already underway, and is comprised of two studies: Comprehensive Boston Harbor Water Transportation Study and Business Plans and the Water Transportation Strategy for the Boston Harbor Islands National and State Park.

Over a period of nine months, these studies will zero in on opportunities to expand the region’s ferry-based transportation network. Potential sites for ferry service or expansion include:

  • Inner Harbor
  • North and South Shores
  • Harbor Islands

The managing organization, Boston Harbor Now, works with public agencies, communities and private and non-profit partners in order to encourage exploration of Boston’s waterfront and islands. Their aim is to establish Boston as “one of the world’s truly great coastal cities.”

Boston Harbor Now is calling for input and participation from individuals and organizations who might be affected by ferry service in the greater Boston area. Where do you think ferry service should be expanded? What’s already working/ not working in Boston’s ferry system? How would expanded ferry service affect your business?
