Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need a reservation?
No, South Ferry does not take reservations as we shuttle people back and forth constantly. Just drive up, and on to the next available vessel following all crew instructions. You can buy your ticket online to present to our crew after you drive aboard on the travel date you scheduled. Note that weekly commuter passes expire as of the last ferry on the Sunday after purchase date.
