Commuters On Staten Island Ferry, NY

Commuters On Staten Island Ferry, NY

Water taxis already float across the Potomac and Anacostia Rivers in the Washington area. But the region doesn’t have anything like a commuter ferry like those in Seattle and New York City. But a plan under discussion would create a water transportation system connecting Northern Virginia, Washington, D.C. and Maryland. How feasible is the proposal and is it the best way to approach transit problems in the region?
