NYC Ferry is a network of ferry routes in New York City about six routes connecting 21 ferry piers in the Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, and Queens. MarinaStep ship gangways are designed for high capacity, high volume applications, and services over 28 vessels on an hourly or 30-minute departure schedule.
The ferry service was originally expected to transport 4.5 to 4.6 million passengers annually. Higher-than-expected ridership on NYC Ferry routes caused officials to order new vessels and expand the capacity of existing vessels. In spring 2018, the annual ridership estimates were revised to 9 million, double the original projection, and a further expansion of the NYC Ferry fleet was announced. Despite its crowding, the ferry has generally received positive reviews from passengers.
