Vehicles No Longer Allowed On Algiers Ferry Starting Monday
The Algiers ferry will transport pedestrians only starting July first.
The hours of operation will also be reduced.
Those who rely on the ferry are now treading uncertain waters.
The Department of Transportation says budget constraints are the reason for scaled back operations and new foot traffic only rules.
The Regional Transit Authority has plans to take over ferry operations by September, but nothing has been finalized.
There’s political optimism the RTA take-over of the Algiers ferry will be complete by September when vehicles and hours of operations could be restored.
