Post-Sandy ferry from Staten Island to start Monday
NEW YORK -- Staten Islanders are getting a temporary new ferry service to help them get around in the wake of Superstorm Sandy.
The New York City Transportation Department said Saturday that New York Water Taxi will run the eight-week service, starting Monday. Plans for it were announced earlier this week.
Boats will travel between a temporary landing at Staten Island's Great Kills Park and Manhattan, with stops near Wall Street and in midtown. The one-way fare is $2.
Schedules are on the Transportation Department's website.
New York Water Taxi says it hope to help some of the people hardest hit by the storm. Many are contending with storm-damaged cars and other transportation problems.
The city has established a similar temporary ferry to the badly damaged Rockaways in Queens. ___
