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.

“There’s nothing more rewarding to me than seeing a city-kid on a boat for the first time — smiling, confident, and amazed after catching their first fish. To keep our program running, we rely on the generosity and support of programs like the MCCA’s Community Partnership Grants. Their commitment to community programs, particularly youth programs, makes our small operation and all those smiles possible.”
