Sag Harbor Greenlights Greenport Ferry

County approval of fares and schedule still needed.

The Sag Harbor Village Board voted Tuesday night to grant a license to Peconic Bay Water Jitney to operate a water taxi on a trial basis connecting Sag Harbor to Greenport, The Suffolk Times reports, the penultimate step to realizing a pedestrian ferry.

Back on May 10, the Greenport Village Board approved the ferry, and now, The Times reports, the Suffolk County Legislature must sign off on the ferry’s fares and schedule during a vote June 19.

The ferry is a joint venture between President Geoffrey Lynch and Jim Ryan of Response Marine, who told The Times that he expects ferry service will begin between June 20 and June 28.

I can't WAIT to use this ferry! I'd probably use it more, if they offered a discount to group members, such as AAA, AARP, Vol. FD Members, etc. Good Luck!

How about signing up as many businesses in both villages as possible, and have them offer a 10% discount to all ferry patrons, when they produce their ticket stub? Win/Win for everyone, due to the increased amount of shoppers...

As the NoFo and SoFo realize they compliment each other and such cooperation is a big win win. Congrats for making this happen
