The implementation of subsidized ferry service provided a convenient way for people who live near the water to get to work. However, those who reside along the waterfront tend to be wealthier and ferry ridership numbers are low. The city is subsidizing each ferry ride to the tune of $9.34 per passenger, which is comparatively high. Eliminate the ferry and invest the money into better subway and bus service for the masses.
