HAS THE YARMOUTH FERRY BEEN SUCCESSFUL?

When the Yarmouth Ferry returned this spring a lot of people and businesses around Queens and elsewhere were very pleased.

But the return has been anything but successful.

The figures say differently.

The Ferry line wanted to do 100,000 passengers in traffic.

That seemed high when the ferry started and will come nowhere near that figure.

The 21 million dollar loan which was supposed to last seven years got all used up within a few months and that’s taxpayer money.

Now the ferry folks say it will shut down early.

Not exactly a vote of confidence, is it?

Not a good first year.

It makes one wonder if there will be a year two?
