The City of Glen Cove plans to implement a public RFP for a ferry operator, a two (2) boat express service from Glen Cove to E34th and Wall Streets in Manhattan. Each vessel will make 2 outbound trips in the morning, and 2 at night, with an additional run mid-day if ridership warrants. Operations will commence with an 18 to 24-month pilot program with the selected operator. Ticket prices will be set to ensure maximum operation and duration of the pilot. Operator maintenance, profit, and charter fees would be capped, and no funds dedicated to maintenance of the landing.
