Boston will get a new ferry soon, but only for some people

There’s a new public transit service coming to Boston Harbor. Sort of.

Later this month, ferries will begin shuttling commuters between Lovejoy Wharf near North Station and Fan Pier in the transit-starved Seaport District, with trips every 20 minutes during rush hour. The service will be run by Bay State Cruise Co. under a $2.2 million contract with the Massachusetts Convention Center Authority, which is taking the unusual role of overseeing the one-year pilot program for a group of Seaport companies and landlords.

But to start, the ferries will be off-limits to members of the general public. In the first few weeks, the 97-seat boats will be open only to employees or tenants of the group funding the service, which includes Vertex, PWC, and Fan Pier developer Fallon Co. Eventually, members of the public will be allowed onboard, but only a handful at a time, and they will have to pay.

"The champion of this department was Levy Restaurants, an event and catering company associated with Hynes Convention Center. Levy’s cupcakes were basically beyond words. I’ve never tasted a better crafted cupcake in my entire 26 year-cupcake-eating-life."

“As a small non-profit, serving vulnerable women and children, we struggle to meet their needs with our limited budget. Donations from the Conventions C.A.R.E. program not only provide needed supplies to our families, but they also help to preserve our resources during these challenging times.”
