    Making the fare for the ferry the same as bus & subway fares is foolish. At least De Blasio could have made the fare the same as it cost for MTA Express Bus Service ($6.75) which people already willingly pay as an alternative to the bus & subway. He's also going to hurt the existing private ferry services by charging less than they do. This guy is an idiot, can't blame me since I didn't vote for him.

    Fast Ferry service from the Highlands, NJ to Manhattan is $26 one way, $45 round trip or $655 for a book of 40 trips. The ride from the Rockaways in Queens is about equidistant & only cost $2.75 when it was running. To add insult to injury they used Fast Ferry (Seastreak) boats on that run. The same boats that run from the Highlands, NJ.

    What does MargitRobinson think about bridge and tunnel tolls and the costs of commuting in the NY Metro area ?

    I'm going to guess something like: "it is a interesting topic. Cost is bridge toll and there are tunnel. Commute in NY Metro is too commute in bridge toll and on tunnel."

    Idiot?

    You're missing the boat (pun intended) on this one.

    It's 100% his intention to put a private company out of business and replace it with a taxpayer funded, money-losing, government entity.

    For this, I'd consider a summer vacation in NJ.

    A phrase spoken only two or three times in the history of the world. Don't miss out on this opportunity to make NJ great again, Xanadu!

    Except each year by the tens-of-thousands staying at the Jersey shore.

    I believe the phrase they use is "down the shore".

    OMG - you might be the first person that I've heard use that phrase, since my high school days. I grew up at the Jersey Shore and that was thrown around a lot... lol
