Secretary Davey, Lynn Ferry Announcement, May 14, 2014Governor Deval Patrick today joined MassDOT Secretary & CEO Richard A. Davey, state and city officials to announce the start of pilot ferry service from Lynn to Boston scheduled to begin on Monday, May 19, 2014. This new ferry service will open up a greater range of economic and play opportunities for residents of the North Shore and Boston.

“Today, I am proud to announce that ferry service will be available from Lynn to Boston, providing greater options for commuters from the North Shore,” said Governor Patrick. “We continue to invest in alternative forms of transportation, because we believe it will help to spur economic growth and improve access to opportunity across the state.”

The two-year pilot ferry service from Lynn to Boston will depart from the newly constructed Blossom Street Pier in Lynn and will dock at Long Wharf in Boston with three weekday departures to and from Boston every day. The Economic Development & Industrial Corporation of Lynn (EDIC) signed a contract with Boston Harbor Cruises to operate the two-year pilot program beginning Monday, May 19, 2014 through Friday, September 12, 2014. Ferry service will allow up to 250 riders per trip to enjoy a 35 minute ferry ride to get to and from their destination.

Parking at the Blossom Street Extension lot in Lynn will be free. Additionally, for the first week of service, from May 19 through May 23, ferry service will be free. Following that, a one way fare will cost $7, with half price fares available for seniors and children. Round-trip fares will be $14. Zone II Commuter Rail passes will be also accepted.

“By providing alternative transportation service from Lynn to Boston, MassDOT continues to encourage economic growth in and around the region,” said Secretary Davey. “MassDOT is committed to enhancing our transportation system in a way that strengthens our economy and quality of life.”

The ferry project has received $7.65 million, with $5 million coming from the state Seaport Advisory Council, $2 million from the U.S. Department of Transportation and $650,000 from EDIC.
