DOT Amendment relating to boarding requirements for the Staten Island Ferry

Adopted Rules: Closed to Comments

Effective Date: 
Thursday, April 20, 2017
Agency:

The Staten Island Ferry currently requires that passengers board the ferry via the boarding doors on the ferry’s upper level, unless otherwise instructed. However, certain passengers (such as persons with disabilities that seriously impair their mobility) are also allowed to board the ferry via the boarding doors on the ferry’s lower level. These rules set forth the general boarding requirements, as well as the procedure for permitting lower level boarding access.
