Commuters Relying on Port Jefferson Ferry

A small but important percentage of riders, commuters prefer to travel by ferry.

The Bridgeport & Port Jefferson Ferry has been a unique and reliable way to travel for years, and for many commuters from the area who work in Connecticut, or vice-versa, it's the best way to get to and from work.

Local commuters who rely on the ferry were recently profiled in a report on CTPost.com sharing their stories and their reasons on why the ferry is their preferred method of travel.

According to Fred Hall, vice president and general manager of the Bridgeport & Port Jefferson Steamboat Co., commuters are a small but vital percentage of the roughly 800,000 passengers who ride the ferry each year.

Bob Patrovic, of Miller Place, works in Stratford, Conn. and is one of the evidently tight-knit commuters who can be seen on the ferry each morning and evening.

According to the report, the ferry company has plans to relocate the Bridgeport terminal to a proposed massive docking complex which would have on-site parking for walk-on ferry passengers and would be closer to I-95, cutting about six or more minutes in travel time and decreasing fuel consumption for commuters.
