2022 Achievements

Greetings from our Fishers Island Ferry team!

After weathering Covid-related disruptions over the past several seasons, we are pleased to share some exciting new accomplishments in 2022. During this period, our team was able to:

  • Welcome David McCall as our new Island Manager
  • Successfully secure permits and manage installation of our new Ferry Park
  • Used spoils from our dredging project to create a berm with plantings adjacent to the harbor entrance with support from the Fishers Island Conservancy
  • Begin the process of planning for our next ferry
  • Initiate the bond application process to finance two critical infrastructure projects:
    – New pilings (“dolphins”) for the New London terminal, and
    – A new ferry ramp to replace the old south ramp at Fishers Island
  • Negotiate a new 5 year contract with our ferry workers’ union
  • Upgrade the ferry district’s computer servers
  • Install a new, more efficient ticketing system with more enhancements to be added in 2023
  • Add a new roof to the theater building
  • Paint the airport building
  • Renovate and update the Fishers Island Ferry manager’s office

There is always more to be done and we are already hard at work planning future service improvements. We are grateful for the support of our board and all members of the Fishers Island Community. And we must always remember that none of this would be possible without our GREAT ferry crew.
