At a recent meeting of civic non-profit leaders at the New England Aquarium, a lengthy discussion ensued about the expansion of Boston’s water transportation system. The panelists expressed support for additional ferries to decrease the surface road congestion including hundreds of private shuttles transporting employees to / from North and South Station. The panel also raised important questions about who would manage and fund this new water system.
Go Boston 2030, comprised of 58 projects to address transportation challenges in the city, has also included inner harbor ferry expansion as a long-term goal. The project aims to connect Lovejoy Wharf to Fan Pier, Charlestown’s Pier 4, and Lewis Mall in East Boston.
