The Bridgeport & Port Jefferson Ferry has been a unique and reliable way to travel for years, and for many commuters from the area who work in Connecticut, or vice-versa, it's the best way to get to and from work.
Bob Patrovic, of Miller Place, works in Stratford, Conn. and is one of the evidently tight-knit commuters who can be seen on the ferry each morning and evening.
According to Fred Hall, vice president and general manager of the Bridgeport & Port Jefferson Steamboat Co., commuters are a small but vital percentage of the roughly 800,000 passengers who ride the ferry each year.
According to the report, the ferry company has plans to relocate the Bridgeport terminal to a proposed massive docking complex which would have on-site parking for walk-on ferry passengers and would be closer to I-95, cutting about six or more minutes in travel time and decreasing fuel consumption for commuters.
