While we tend to associate New York public transit with subways, buses, and trains, ferries have been a key piece of the city’s transportation network for over 200 years. This historically important role of ferries continued in 2017 with the launch of NYC Ferry service, connecting waterfront communities along 60+ nautical miles of waterways throughout New York City. 


Ferries remind us we live in a city surrounded and connected by water and play an important role in times of crisis, providing critical support for evacuation efforts. Join Alan Olmsted, City Planner, Resilience, and Franny Civitano, NYC Ferry Deputy Director, to learn more about ferry service from the 1800s until now, and how it is an essential component of New York City’s transit resiliency.
