Ferry

From 10/13/23 FINS:

Ferry: The last Ferry run for this season will be 9 PM Wednesday, November 1st

.

Ferry CardsThere has been a long-standing policy that pictures of ferry EZ-ride cards on a mobile device should not

be presented for passage in lieu of the card itself, for the reasons mentioned in the several communications on that subject. This is an advance notice that as of island opening next year, if the physical card is not presented, the EZ-ride card (“owner”) price will not apply, and the full “street” price will have to be paid by cash, check or credit card.

Refunds will not be made for the difference. Displays of issued tickets as electronic files on mobile devices will be accepted as always. Photographs of paper tickets may not be, because of variable resolution.


Ferry Tickets:  Another reminder that any tickets issued on property owner Ferry accounts that are unused as of island close will be retired during the off-season and the value will be refunded to the accounts on which they were purchased.

This means that paper tickets issued this year will not be valid next year. Any holders of these tickets who would not receive Town communications should be informed that new tickets will have to be issued. Holders of tickets issued on “Office” (non-owner) accounts should not be affected. You can also refund any unused tickets yourself at any time via your ferry account. You’ll receive a notification when tickets for the 2024 season can be issued from ferry accounts.
