East River Ferry
City Council Speaker Christine Quinn was among the lawmakers Saturday who called on the Metropolitan Transit Authority to make up for the loss of G Train service between Brooklyn and Queens.
Mayor Michael Bloomberg says 1 million passengers have ridden ferries across the East River since the service started just over one year ago.
After two weeks of free rides, East River Ferry officials say their new service from Brooklyn and Queens to Manhattan continues to exceed expectations.
East River Ferry service will be free until June 24. After that it will cost $4 for a one-way ticket, $12 for an unlimited day pass and $140 for an unlimited monthly pass.
