BOSTON – East Boston commuters now have a new way to get downtown.
The MBTA is once again offering ferry service from the Lewis Mall to Long Wharf. A trip costs the same as subway fare.
The boats last ran in the spring temporarily while the Blue Line was suspended for tunnel maintenance. The T said 1,750 riders a day took advantage of the ferry service, leading the Legislature to fund a new pilot program.
Ferry service will run until November 30, and then resume for the spring on March 1, 2023. Each trip takes about 10 minutes.
