NY Waterway ferries back in service
the U.S. Coast Guard has announced that most of NY Waterway ferries taken out of service for safety violations last month have returned to regular operations.
“The safety of the passengers that ride these ferries is our top priority. We expect passenger vessels to be in compliance with safety standards and ready for inspection at all times. We know many people rely on these ferries for their daily commutes, and we will continue to work with NY Waterway to ensure sustained compliance with Coast Guard safety requirements. As part of this effort, we will be increasing both scheduled and unannounced inspections of their fleet moving forward,” said Capt. Jason Tama, commander of Coast Guard Sector New York.
The region’s multiple ferry systems carry tens of millions of passengers annually, making it one of the busiest ferry networks in the world.
